brass is taiya (revisited)

taiya = brass (Lhaesine pronunciation = TAY-yuh) (metal alloy) (Some things Google found for "taiya": an uncommon term; a river and inlet near Skagway in Alaska; a feminine first name; means "tire, rubber covering on a wheel" in Japanese (transliterated); name of a city in South Korea; name of a town in Papua New Guinea)

My previous Lhaesine word for "brass" was "taiyen". This is a small modification.

Brass is an alloy of copper and zinc. It is often used as decoration and for coins. In antiquity, polished brass was often used as a mirror.

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 This posting is no longer current.
