yellow is pethas (revisited)

pethas = yellow (Lhaesine pronunciation = PETH-ahce) (color) (adjective) (some things Google found for "pethas": an uncommon term; plural of petha which is a candied ash gourd candy from North India; user names; a rare last name; Pethas Ltd is a company in Belgium that sells fertilizer for agricultural use; can be phrase "pet has" lacking the space between the words)

My previous Lhaesine word for "yellow" was "pethe", which is pronounced PEETH. Although the word sounds somewhat like peach, I didn't like that it also sounds like pee and peed, informal terms for urination, which is not good for a word for yellow. I'll redefine "pethe" as something else later.
