Ok, so, for "atom," I came up with oyu'baat'yc arpat (Universal seed). Kinda klunky, but it works. Maybe oyu'b'arpat?

Oh, and by the way, how the shab does mando'a NOT have a word for explode/explosion? Mando'ade are warriors, for crying out loud! LOL

Working through a story, and I tried finding a word for 'injection' as in medical injection. I was unable to find anything close, any suggestions?

Related words:

medic - baar'ur
needle, spike - bev
health - jahaal
tal - blood
suck, absorb, draw up (liquid) - sooranir
give - dinuir

A "syringe" could be put together from "baar'ur" and "bev" -- as such a device is a tool of a medic or doctor, so we could simply do "be'baar'ur bev" (medic's needle) or "baar'ur'bev" (medical needle -- distinct from a "normal" needle or spike). Since "baar'ur" seems to come from "baar" (body) and "ulur" (care), we might be able to shorten that further to "ur'bev" (care needle, which mentally extrapolates to "syringe").

"Drawing blood" (in a medical sense) could be built from "bev", "tal", and "sooranir"; something like "bev'soorani tal" (drawing blood by a needle) or, to use the short-form above, "ur'bev'soorani tal".

Finally, to "give an injection" could be built from "dinuir", "jahaal", and "bev"; something like "dinui bev'jahaal" (delivery of medicine by needle) -- though it feels a bit awkward to say, basically, "give health-needle". We could use the short-form for syringe, specifically, like so: "dinui ur'bev'jahaal".

I'm sure those could be more elegantly assembled, so feel free to run with those ideas and let us know what you come up with. :)

I feel like drawing blood could shorten to just "sooran tal" since even in English we take it as read that a needle is involved, and we don't specifically mention it. Fells more colloquial. Good job with these, by the way.

I'm pretty sure we had a word for 'life'?
Something with the oya-stem?

I feel uncomfortable about nouns ending on 'r' becasue that's how infintives of verbs end.

Vode!
What is the common word for "to awaken / awake"? There has been some discussion, variations are "hoyir / hoy" (derived from "hunoy") and "oya'barir / oya'baar" respectively. Please help finding the correct translation.
