silver is tirsar (reinstated)

tirsar = silver (Lhaesine pronunciation = TIHRCE-ahr) (noun) (some things Google found for "tirsar": a rare term; a last name that's Romanian; means something in Turkish; Tirsar is a place name that translates as "arrow lake" in Punjab, India; possible misspelling of "tirar" which means "pull, take away" in Spanish, Portuguese, and Catalan; a fantasy character name)

Since I decided to allow the "rs" consonant on the end of syllables, I'm reinstating this word for "silver" again. Instead of being pronounced "TIH-rsahr" it is "TIHRCE-ahr", similiar to the English words "tears are" but with a "s" sound instead of a "z".

I have changed the word for "silver" many times. My most recent Lhaesine conlang word for "silver" was "tishar".

This word has been revised yet again. The Lhaesine word for "silver" is now "tirsa". This posting is no longer current.

As the "International Year of Languages" comes to an end on 21st February, you may be interested in the contribution, made by the World Esperanto Association, to UNESCO's campaign for the protection of endangered languages.

The following declaration was made in favour of Esperanto, by UNESCO at its Paris HQ in December 2008. http://portal.unesco.org/culture/en/ev.php-URL_ID=38420&URL_DO=DO_PRINTPAGE&URL_SECTION=201.html

The commitment to the campaign to save endangered languages was made, by the World Esperanto Association at the United Nations' Geneva HQ in September.
