For one thing the emphasis is in a different place: RA-shya vs. ray-SHEE-a.

How'd he know what tug'yc meant?

'Moichido' is 'do it again' or 'one more time', but we use it also as 'from the top' if someone screws up halfway through a kata.
I screw up -> he says 'moichido' -> I start over.
I screw up -> I notice it before he does -> I mutter 'moichido' or 'tug'yc' to myself and start over.
'What the heck is tug'yc?'
'Same thing, different language.'
'Huh.' Couple practices later, I screw up -> 'heh, tug'yc, then.'

Ah, I see.

By the way, I have a ton of new words coming in that I had to come up with for translating RimWorld (ukor b'ukor, and all that). I can't post them right now, but they're coming, about 50 or more.

I know it's an extremely obvious solution without making up a whole new root but I'm happy that we both independently came up with kursh'ika.

I think "pirusti" doesnt mean "well" in sense of good, i think Kar'buir meant the noun "well" as in a hole in the ground, a water source. Since "pirun" is "water" and "pirur" is "drink".

"Briikas" would most likely mean "gladness, happiness" since "briikase" is "glad, happy". For social id suggest something like "drotyc", from "droten" - people.

Oh :o that makes more sense. I knew it didn't mean 'well' as in 'health' because of jahaala, but I never considered 'well', 'a deep subject.'

Yeah, I know. But it was the only thing I could come up with. Thank you for drotyc, though.

Vor'e for the list, ner vod. I'm having a problem looking at the thing though...So I downloaded that but I'm missing the font for it apparently and I'm also just kind of getting the mythosaur skull overtop the graph bits. Would you know how to fix that issue? I'm looking at it on my mac through numbers.

You are probably looking at the firsl list in the file which is a title page. I dont remember where in numbers you can switch between them, but theres a list called mando-english, grammar etc. try finding that. Probably above the spreadsheet itself.
