I thought that I'd post some random Styrásh-sounding words that haven't yet had meanings assigned to them, and let everyone's imaginations run wild.  I've posted little mini-commentaries about what I think they could mean, but they are merely suggestions.

auón = taken from the first four letters of my surname.  Sounds as though it relates to the light and goodness in the world to me [English aura, Styrásh auón, there's a similarity... at least I think there is].

kerásh = I remember this being suggested earlier as meaning ''wolf'', but to me it seems more like an insult, or a name that little elflings would call each other mockingly....

''Oh, Ysurán, thou art about as deep as a river and surely twice as murky.''
''Speak ye verily, Aehrín?''
''Aye, Ysurán. I speak naught but the truth.''
''It is well for me, though, that I am not such a kerásh as thee!''

and finally,

aorán = seems to me to mean something like ''to fight'' or ''to strike'', seeing as aór is listed as meaning 'club.'  That was unintentional, but oddly convenient, don't you think?

Well, yes, I knew that, Talia.  I was merely suggesting that auón's similarity to 'aura' suggested to me a connotation of light and goodness.
 I didn't say that it needed to mean 'aura.'

EDIT:  I'm sorry, that came out sounding incredibly rude and snappy now that I read it.  My apologies, Talia! :)

We unfortunately already have "arneán" for "strike".  I like "aorán" though.  If it had meant "strike", we could perhaps have "scalán" for "cut", derived from the word for "blade".

I took a look at the styrásh dictionary, and found a that a word that could be useful was't there. The word is: learn. Any suggestions?

Hello Avisari!  Why don't you zip on over to the Intro board and tell us a little more about yourself?

Anyways, regarding your question, how about one of these for ''to learn''?:

gorán or borán  =  both shortened from guorán bollím, meaning ''to devour knowledge.''

or,

ma'llán or misollán  =  both shortened from misoán bollím, meaning ''to increase knowledge.''

M'kay, so Art wanted a word for 'wise elvish saying' or 'proverb' or something of the sort, so here goes:

Soorán cár'reollthé means 'to speak from the heart', so we could shorten that to something like saltherá or carallthán.

And then you could also say soorán morthé, which means 'to speak deeply' [lit. 'to speak from-deep].  That could come out as mortherá (<- Ysuran likes  grin) or else so'morthá or something.

BING!!!!! Idea!!!!!  I think that I'll create elven names for some different forms of poetry.  Like, a couplet could translate as danár danarthé ('hand in hand'  :)) and shorten to danadár or danthará or the like.... I'm so excited!! 

What say you?

Here, I need this word for the poetry project - I think that I'll make it an entry, by the way - so I thought that I had might as well post it:

sór  -  ''word''
noun, m.
derived from soorán  -  ''to speak''

Whoops, need this one, too:

lytherá  -  ''poem''
noun, f.
loosely derived from ále'sorín, ''singing words.''

From whence can be derived

lytherán  -  ''to compose poetry''  (or ''to recite poetry''?)

well, I do have an idea for something similar to soulmate that is translated as "forever love"
it's called límín.  It doesn't have a gender, and as for colors...
orange:  Wissebe
purple:  Tuesen
black:  Ermal
yellow:  Filamia
other ideas for words include:  Arlankra, Similo, Talkarn, Doramaran, Papya, Aplam, Thrashak, Varamaak, Ofon, Judar, Lakrat, Celaon, Kimpalp, Cosetii, Dirpawl, Taramand Krior

Myklamia - we appreciate your suggestions, but if you are going to use these ideas in your own fantasy world/universe and your resulting stories, we can't use them.  All contributions to the Santharian Dream must be unique and designed for the Dream.

Thanks, though!

Hello Myklamia!

I also have a few things to say to your contributions.

For one thing, you can't propose a word for Styrásh and say that it is derived from Styrásh when it isn't. Límín most certainly does not translate to ''forever love'', and it really doesn't look all that much like a Styrásh word, either.  In addition, you can't say that límín doesn't have a gender, as every noun in Styrásh is either masculine or feminine.  There are no neuter cases for anything in the language.

As for the other words you suggested - they wouldn't really fit into the language, either.  An example to defend my case:

Take, for instance, your proposed word for ''yellow'' - filamia- and the sentence ''The thieves are stealing the large yellow diamond from the elven noblewoman.''  When translated, this becomes:

Aferanté sá mí'leryorthím únn filamia kyrasthé sáh aferoía

Doesn't filamia both look and sound just a little out of place in there?

So thank you for your suggestions, but it just wouldn't be possible to incorporate them into the world we've made.

NOTE:

In the sentence above, I coined a word for ''elven noblewoman'' - kyrás.  It's derived from kái'styrás, literally meaning ''high (noble?) female elf''.  Therefore, we could also get kyrós for ''elven nobleman'' (from kái'styrós, ''high [noble?] male elf).  I'm not sure of the elves have nobles or not, but if they do, TADA!  We now have words for them.  grin

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
