Vor'e! I've been out of the loop for a while, and didn't have that list. I was able to find and download it, which will make things much easier for me in the future.

Strike me down, and I'll not fight back; Threaten my brothers, and even death will not protect you from my wrath.

Q: So I've been trying to find a word for seer (clairvoyant, fortune teller) and couldn't find one. The closest I've come is combining words for future (vencuyot) and vision (haa'it), however, I believe that something like observer/watcher would fit better the issue is that I can only find the word for observe/watch over (ja'hailir). How would I go about creating a coherent translation for seer using these, or other, words?

Well, ja'hailur, then.

So it would be along the lines of Vencuyot Ja'hailur for "future observer"?

Taylir bic pakod, jare. Mando'ade nu'go'naasir miite.
'ven'ja'hailur' would do it - literally comes out as 'future-see-er'.
