fat is goala (revisited)

goala = fat (Lhaesine pronunciation = GOH-luh) (adjective) (some things Google found for "goala": a common term; user names; a last name that can be from India; a pastoral caste whose main occupation was milkmen; may mean something in Romanian; places in Bangladesh, Haiti, Burkina Faso, Romania, Chad, and Sierra Leone)

My previous Lhaesine word for "fat" was "gola". I decided to go with the long "o" sound (instead of the short one) for this word, so I adjusted the spelling. This is another small revision. I think it's sort of fitting for the word for "fat" to use a "fatter-looking" vowel.

This word has been revised. The word for "fat" is now "gole". This posting is no longer current.
