bad is rhac (revisited)

rhac = bad (Lhaesine pronunciation = RRAHK) (adjective) (some things Google found for "rhac": a uncommon term; RHAC is an acronym for Radio Historical Association of Colorado; RHAC stands for Richmond Hill Aquatic Club of Ontario, Canada; RHAC is an acronym for Residence Hall(s) Advisory Council; short for rhacodactylus which is a genus of medium to large geckos; RHAC is an acronym for Rural Health Advisory Commission (or Council))

My previous Lhaesine word for "bad" was "rhaet". The new word is shorter and harsher in pronunciation.

some is odal (revisited)

odal = some (Lhaesine pronunciation = AW-dahl) (adjective) (some things Google found for "odal": a common term; a traditional district of Norway; name of a German black metal band; a last name; a Germanic Elder Futhark rune which represents the o sound; a medieval mainly Scandinavian term for the family heritable land; name of a city in India)

My previous Lhaesine word for "some" was "adl". This word was changed because of the odd "dl" consonant combination. I decided to change the first letter to "o" for pronunciation and because I don't have that many words starting with that letter.

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 This posting is no longer current.

wise is darsan (revisited)

darsan = wise (Lhaesine pronunciation = DAHRCE-ahn) (adjective) (some things Google found for "darsan": a very common term; "darshan" or "darsan" means "a blessed sight of the divine" in Hinduism and Sikhism; user names; a last name; name of a town in Iran)

My previous Lhaesine word for "wise" was "rsada". I shifted the letters around and added a "n". Instead of getting rid of the unusual "rs" consonant combination, I'm keeping it as an end of syllable combination.
