sand is beida (revisited)

beida = sand (Lhaesine pronunciation = BEE-duh) (noun) (some things Google found for "beida": a very common term; Peking University in China is known by the nickname Beida (or Bei Da) which is which is an abbreviation of the Chinese words Beijing and Daxue (meaning university); "beida" means "white" in Arabic when transliterated; Chorba Beida (white soup) is a dish from Algeria; a last name; name of cities in Egypt, China, Syria, Yemen, Sudan and Libya; Dar El Beïda is a suburb of Algiers, Algeria; Goz Beïda is a town in Chad; Ain Beida is the name of cities in Algeria and Morocco)

My previous Lhaesine word for "sand" was "eida". I like that this word's pronunciation is similar to bead.

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 This posting is no longer current.
