Could I get an elven and dwarven word for the following words/weapons?

- Axe (only elven needed)
- Blade
- Club
- Hammer
- Spear (only dwarven needed)
- Sword

I noticed these words were missing from the respective dictionaries.  And, since I'm trying to make specific weapon-types for the various races and tribes, it would be so much easier if I had these words to call them.

I'd really appreciate it!!!

EDIT: Oops, Luca accidentally directed me to the wrong forum. ^^;;  My bad.  I'll post this in the right one this time.

It's update weekend, so I'll be busy until Monday, but I won't forget about the words. They'll come early next week:)

Thank you very much, both of you, for your prompt response.

Judith, I noticed that you are one of the main dwarven developers, so expect me to be coming to you for aid with names and the like often.

I know not who did a greater majority of the work on Styrash, but I'll also be needing much assistance with the best names for weapons.  Afterall, weapons are often only as cool as their names.

Ok, here come the Styrásh words. Note that all of the are masculine, while the elves' orientation is basically towards the female gender, and also refects in their language.

So here they are:

- Axe = khrog (m.)
- Blade = scál (m.)
- Club = aór (m.)
- Hammer = únj'aór (m.) lit. "square-club" (únj = square)
- Spear = yíl (m.), this one already existed
- Sword = cár'scál (m.), lit. "life-blade"
