door is tiiba (revisited)

tiiba = door (Lhaesine pronunciation = TIE-buh) (noun) (some things Google found for "tiiba": an uncommon term; user names; character in anime Slayers; a Japanese name; means something similiar to "wing" in Estonian)

My previous Lhaesine word for "door" was "thiba". I'm changing it because it was atypical, the only word that began with "th" in this entire conlang language.

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 This posting is no longer current.

Are you going to change dutha?

Best wishes.

No, dutha stays. (Dutha is my Lhaesine word for swamp.)

I'm making TH into an end of syllable consonant combination, such as LD, LT or ND. But that means I’ll need to change the pronunciation of dutha slightly, from DUH-thuh to DUHTH-uh.

Aha! I see.

So how many words do you have so far?
