Mmmmm, thank you, but as the dwarven day is actually the human night, it would be odd for them to use that particular expression to greet each other.  Language springs from a deep understanding of culture and something so basic as a greeting needs to reflect that (for example, the Koreans use phrases that translate literally as 'Peace be with you' and 'Have you eaten rice yet today?', depending upon the formality of the situation!) 

'Urtdon' might be a general comment on the weather, except that caverns are pretty immune to weather changes, not to mention time of day....
However, I appreciate the concept - you seem to have spotted a gaping hole in the language - so I'll turn my energy to providing some ideas for dwarven greetings and partings!  Watch this spot.....

Derived from the working of our wonderful Bard;

'Steward' -> 'Heoryim' (one who stores up)
'Stewards' (as seen in the Trumaden Heyim, 'Stewards of the Holy Blood' -> 'Heyim'

Would UnSthommAverim (Derivate->Unsthoverim) be suiteable for "Bone"?

Not a bad derivative, but something so basic shouldn't be an agglomeration, just a 'base' word.
I've wanted some cognates of 'sth' for a while anyhow, so you can have

Stho - bone
Sthonerons - bones
Sthoni - bony, osseous, calcified

Thohthom - skull
Mustho - skeleton
Grum - tooth
Grumerons - teeth


There, hope that helps!

Quite, as such words are very useful in naming cave locations and such!

*groans* I want a DictioDwarf! There are no colour words in the dictionary, but they áre referred to :P

I hoped to combine a word for green with life to make plant, and then add length for Vine.

Oh, I'm sorry!  I know, I have a ton of words in my dictionary file that just have to be added yet.
I thought I'd posted the colour words to this thread at one point though....  ok, I'll search my various files:


black - Morsek
grey -
white -
pink - 
red - Oonsek
purple - Dasek
lavender -
light blue –
dark blue -
turquoise – Kasek (colour)
light green -
dark green -
yellow -
golden -
orange -

Right, that's embarrassing!  There don't seem to BE colour words in dwarven yet!  I hide my bardic head in shame.
Perhaps we could use a cognate from the ThergerimTaal for emerald and peridot and try 'Gnasek' for 'green'?

However, I can just give you a word for 'plant' - and a few more while I'm at it.

Plant – Stuon
Tree – Stukaor
Vine – Stukarolon
Moss – Krr
Moonmoss - Krruth
Bright – Urril
Shine, to – Urmi
Glow, to  - Uthuu



Oh, some more words which I'm not sure made it up yet:

Sekket – colourful
Katinn – outside, exterior
Som – ledge
Suk – Coal (the naturally-occurring material.  For ‘coals’, see ‘Sohnsuk’…)
Sohnsuk –  ember
Sohnsukerons – embers, hot coals
Ardeninn – Breathing
Arfuinn – Blowing, puffing
Sohnsuk Arfuinn – the game of ember-blowing

Consider is a speedy-delivery bonus. It took you but half an hour to get a scroll from New Santhala all the way to M'aghin!

Just looking at the colour words you posted and the word sekket for "colourful," would it be reasonable to derive

sek(k?) "colour"...?

Oh, and for "dark green," could we possibly have krrsek (lit. "moss-colour")? Just throwing ideas around here, I've never tried my hand at the dwarf-tongue before.  :P

As unsekket means coloured, sekk would probably be the most consistent choice.

Hello all! It's been a minute since I poked my nose in here. Can't remember if I ever did anything useful.

Ah, too bad that internet is so restricted in China, Ferra. Can't be much fun surfing the web that way if Big Brother's watching you... Hope you enjoy your stay nevertheless!

Hi, dear Arti and other developers!

This year I am in China and cannot use any Google services including YouTube. For this reason I stopped uploading new Nepris videos. I can also not read any comments there.

It just crossed my mind that this information might be useful to you.

Cheers
