Hi all the Languages experts. I've got a bit of a conundrum; I need some help with Styrash.

I'm trying to make a Styrash phrase roughly equivalent to "coup de grace" for an entry, and I am having a few problems. To wit:
  • There's no word for "mercy" or "kindness" or "compassion" in the Styrash dictionary that I can find.
  • I don't know how to make a noun from a verb  - ie get the noun for "a strike" from the verb "to strike". That's the best way I can come up with, unless anyone can think of a better way to phrase it?
All help will be much appreciated. Thanks.

Here you go:

"arneaém" (m.) = strike, hit, blow
"élyth" (f.) = compassion (lit. "with love")

"Strike of compassion" would then be translated with "arneaém elythís" - hope that helps! :)

Thanks very much Arti! If it's not too much trouble, could you tell me how you make the noun from the verb, so I don't have to ressurect this thread every time I want to get one? Anyway, thanks again.

Well, the page on Styrásh Principles is here, where you have all the details you need.

Basically the ending of a verb is -án, so cut that off, and then check out the masculine or feminine endings and add one to the remaining root. So you need to decide whether the word represents more a masculine or a feminine one as you do that.

And to get a genitive you need to add the -is ending to the root as you can see on the page as well :)

Anyway, aura for helping bewildered apprentice
