Is 'és' the recognised Styrash equivalent of 'ed'?

No, I fear Miés doesn't have a degree in Styrásh... Verbs always end with "-án" in the infinitive form (equivalent of e.g. "to capture"), and the past participle "("captured") would be with an "anhé" ending.

We could have "contán" meaning "to capture", "captured" would however mean "cont'anhé". But composed Styrásh words are often not directly translatable anyway, so this might have been shortened. Words are combined, but the word parts might be somewhat altered. We also have "à" meaning "through" by the way, so maybe that could be of some use.

"Cont'a'már" could be short for "captured through water", which is a descriptive way to express the form and beauty of the forest ("It was captured, brought into this form by water"). Just a suggestion.

  I like it Arti. That was exactly what I was going for, and thank you for the language lesson. Blasted newbies, anyways huh.  :P If this idea is acceptable ("Cont'a'már" meaning "captured through water") I will go ahead and include it in my Forest of Contamar entry.  thanx

Oh don't worry Mifer....Ineptness in the field of Styrash is by no means an ailment affecting the newbie population buck
