flower is talis (revisited)

talis = flower (Lhaesine pronunciation = TAH-lihs) (noun) (some things Google found for "talis": a common term; a UK based company using Semantic Web technologies that has library management software; Talis Advisory Services LLC is a Texas-based Investment Advisor; Talis Group offers staffing services in Kentucky; k. talis jewelry; a first name that can me masculine or feminine; Talis Real Estate Group of San Francisco Bay Area; Talis Haftetiketten GmbH sells self-adhesive labels; a last name that can be British; means "such, of such a kind" in Latin; name of cities in Azerbaijan, Turkey, and Greece)

My previous Lhaesine word for "flower" was "talise". I'm dropping the final "e", which is silent, but this alters the pronunciation of the word. This change is like dropping the final "e" off the word "kite" and getting "kit".
