It seems to have not worked. :(  I'm on my third scan. I've already removed a bunch of things that came up the other two times. But it seems to just keep finding more. This is no good.

Shoot, now I've got it!

I understand what you mean, Azhira, and I appreciate and will apply your suggestion. Though the point isn't to make it easy, it's to have the proper names as named in the world by the inhabitants. So that if I do decide on a bastardization of the name by the humans, I can base the perversion off of the actual name instead of solely going off of the name-trend that the race/tribe renaming it has going.

The main reason I want to use TRULTRUL to name these hills, and maybe a few other areas on that particular island, is because they are the only sentient inhabitants living there that aren't of myth/lore. So, since they mainly live on that island, I figure that they would have names for different general areas of it to communicate to each other that- "Hey, lets go troll around all trolly like in the Rolling Hills today and see what we can nom-nom." I mean, I assume that trolls have conversations with each other just like any other sentient being does, even if they're not very deep or meaningful ones. :P

I'm going to start with a list of words I am going to use as a base, already supplied by Ishmaelion in this thread. After which, I am going to list the tharian name I currently have for the place, coupled with my suggestions for a the Troll's place-name and the bastardization of of said name.


GHEREGH = Cave, home, house, dwelling
IGHMESH = Snow (lit. white stone)
HAMESH = Ice, quartz (literally, 'hard white')
SLOGH = Plain, field
SLOSH = Water
SLOSHSLOSH = Lake, river
SLOGHSLOSH = Island, 'watery plain'
SNI = Small
GH = Being (untranslatable literally. Has the connotation of 'sentience' or 'living'. Animals and some plants can be described with the GH syllable.)
KLOIGH = Mountain
KLOIGHSNI = Hill
SLOGHKRAH = Canyon


Folasch
IGHMESHGHEREGHSLOGHSLOSH. Snowy Home Island.
IGHMESH- Just go with MESH
GHEREGH... REGH
SLOGH... SLOSH...

name suggestions:
MESHREGH SLOGSH
REGHMESH
GREGHMESH
GHEREGHSLOGSH
SLOGRESH


Rolling Snows
KLOIGHKLOIGHSNIMESH. Little White Mountains. Snowy Hills.

name suggestions
MESHGH   or   GHMESH  -  Living snow


Alright. That's all I got. :/   I've been thinking and working on this for the past few days now and that's all I've come up with....

Ishmaelion, I noticed in your list of words that MOSH means Animals. But then MOSHMOSH means Food. But at the bottom it says that to make a word a plural you repeat it. So MOSHMOSH would mean Animals and Food?

I'll probably still have it called the Rolling Snows by the humans of the area. But I wanted a name for it by the people that actually live there. And I'm actually considering renaming the island itself something TRULTRUL sounding, since I will no longer have the Sabuin people there. Snishlosh or some kind of perversion of Slogslosh and their word for snow.

I don't really have time to get too far into this at the moment, as I have to leave for work. I'll post more later. :)

KLOIGHKLOIGHSNIMESH is odd for a place name, and admittedly a little long. But I've seen names that are almost just as long, in R'unor example: Hylph'xan'ian'kroi Mountains is pretty long.

I'm not sure what I expected-...  lol  Actually, I'm pretty sure this exactly what I expected. Thank you for your time, Ishmaelion.

Wait, if KLOIGHSNI is "little mountain" or "hill", and to make something plural you repeat it, then wouldn't a plural of it be KLOIGHSNIKLOIGHSNIMESH?

SLOGHSLOSH... Hehehe. Oddly, it does sound a lot like Folasch when spoken aloud. Hm... Sloghslosh....

Would "KLOIGHSLOSH" be waterfall then?

I look forward to seeing what you come up with, Ishmaelion. :)

I am looking to name the hills in which the Snow Trolls live on the northernmost mainland island of Cyhalloi in TRULTRUL, but I don't really know where to start with this crazy language. As it is right now, the hills are called Rolling Snows, but since the trolls are the only ones living there, I figure they should be the ones naming the place.

Vesk suggested to me IGMESHKLOIGH, which I guess would be "snow mountain", but the hills aren't really mountains. They're just really big hills that shift around like sand dunes in the desert. Any suggestions that you may have for me would be greatly appreciated.

Also, is there a TRULTRUL word for land / island?

Thankyou bunches!

Merry was the day of your birth, and hopefully this day will be just as, if not even moreso, merry as then. Happy birthday, Arti. grin

And just as quickly as I removed the Sabuin from the entry, I have revamped the map. Here you go   :)
57  Santharian World Development / Places and Map Design / Re: Masterwork: Mapping and Overview of Cyhalloi on: 25 May 2012, 10:23:48
Snowy ninja-assassin-pirates that eat orcs for dinner... and every other meal, apparently. O.o

EDIT: I am removing the Sabuin people. Rayne suggested, and I agree, that the islands are getting a bit crowded for it to be a supposedly remote place. Such a shame to lose such nifty names I came up with. Oh well! Maybe I can recycle the tribe and names somewhere else at some point in time.
58  Santharian World Development / Places and Map Design / Re: Masterwork: Mapping and Overview of Cyhalloi on: 24 May 2012, 06:59:26
A whiiiile ago, it as been a very slow process for me. Landscape has proved difficult, as I am not very good with sizing up what will fit where.
I will be rewriting the Kasumarii as well- I think? I have a lot of ideas for them that makes the entire tribe much more... sound.
59  Santharian World Development / Places and Map Design / Re: Masterwork: Mapping and Overview of Cyhalloi on: 24 May 2012, 06:37:30
Okie dokie then, I have a rough draft map for you to work off of.

The green area is the Tundra.

EDIT:: I would also like to move the line for Schu'Buda down a bit further so it takes up a little over half of the island. And, also, the Dieing Ice Ridge a little closer to the coast.

I vaguely remember seeing a bit about polar bears on some kinda nature show I watched a few years ago. If I remember correctly- polar bears spend most of their time in the water swimming, around looking for seals and fish to eat. And only come further inland in order to hibernate and/or have cubs. They can swim really far, they can run really fast. It's a big scary bear.
