Regarding constructed things

Unread postby Vlet Hansen » 19 Jul 2017 15:03

I was at work the other day wondering how I would say "leafblower" (apologies to all of you making infinitely larger expanded vocabularies as I suspect you already have and I missed it) and I came to suspect a possible pattern:

Goyust means a road, as in a path that has been specifically engineered.

Solegot is a computer, as in the engineered thing that does the counting.

For, say, a leafblower or a fan, perhaps we could construct it like this: the machine doing the blowing is a woore'got, and the wind it generates is a gowoor.

This general pattern can be applied to most anything involving machines that do things.

Thoughts?
