white is sare (revisited)

sare = white (Lhaesine pronunciation = SAYR) (adjective) (some things Google found for "sare": an uncommon term; SARE is an acronym for Sustainable Agriculture Research and Education; a last name; Sare is a Basque village in the Aquitaine region of France near the Spanish border; seems to be a variation of the feminine first name Sarah; Sare Plastics is a company in Ohio; means "net" in Basque; means "salt" in Romanian; name of cities in Kenya, Nigeria, Cameroon, Serbia & Montenegro, Croatia, Burkino Faso, East Timor, Pakistan, Estonia)

My previous word for white was "sahre". After much consideration, I decided to drop the "h" from this word. This makes the word less cryptic looking, and only changes the pronunciation somewhat. In Lhaesine "hr" is pronounced as a "rolled r".

This word has been revised. The Lhaesine word for "white" is now "shaye". This posting is no longer current.
