Seeing as tree is from Old English and is a better choosing than beam in the framework (context), I feel that that was eftflowing (redundant).
eft-flowing = full of newts (?)

One big hurdle in the business of Anglish is how much "borrowing" to do from other Thiedish folks' tongues.

A good many of the borrowings & Thiedish-twinnings, methinks, are overmuch. While sometimes there are truly some gaping potholes in the path to find English-only likewords,nonetheless there are many English words in good stead that need no wending into half-Thiedish, or too much Thiedish. Often methinks less is more.

'Beam' could work in a few sayings as 'tree', but 'tree' already has life in English, and ought to likewise have life in Anglish.

With a little more delving in earnest, one might be struck by how many English words are Anglish-worthy (that is to say, Teuton enough as is) , without going the path of speech with overblown twinning.

Yet keep at it, Konungr!
For, even by tumbles and stumbles, we may go on ahead.

Cosh em easy like! Get more words out of em that way! But we must not be overeager.

Wisely said --- many are the wonder words in the mathomhouse of English. Look here in our own root dunge first, raid the neighbors' only when we're truly tharving, indeed starving for a word!

"meter" is a lawful Anglish word, it can be made with "(to) mete" + "-er".

Therefore one can say "warmmeter" instead of "thermometer"

I am gobsmacked to read and search out that yea indeed mete+r would work (!)

Though I would, since it is a thing and a tool, noot -el, like shovel, runnel, thimble, handle and the like.

metel = that which metes, thing which metes
meter = he who metes, one who metes

Thus

heatmetel, warmthmetel = thermometer
heatmeter, warmthmeter ≅ meteorologistweatherman (?)

Maybe too much??

Aye, methinks a tad much.

Weatherman is good Anglish, being come of old from weder, air, sky; breeze, storm, tempest + man, person. So, a person who deals in weather.

As for warmthmetel, I think that would be some thing that metes warmth. What the Frenchly inclined folks do call a "radiator".

For "thermometer", perhaps warmthgage; or better, one of those "thermometer-barometer-humidimeter" thingies, perhaps weathergage would suffice? Old English weder + Frankish galgo by way of Old French gauge.

The other day, I saw Bladerunner Two Thousand Forty-Nine.

It was a gripping tale. At times thrilling.
Jared Leto's Newmann Wallace was near worthless, and
The background songs were a little too loud.
Nonetheless, a worthy next step taken.



The fit with the bereft children's home in Bladerunner,
and the fit with Thor & Hulk's fight in the Slaughterhall in Thor: Ragnarok,
both made me think of Mad Max: Beyond Thunderdome.

I heard it was good, but I haven't seen it. I seldom have the chance to see films, these days.

Folkshirish, indeed. [xP]
Folkshirish is as folkshirish doth, I ween.
Worldly-wise would have been enough for me, but worlddwellerish I like as well.

Don't tell me you've never been to Frankland!
I won't, then. [:$]
My eldest sister asks and asks and asks, and she goes and goes and goes, making holy elsewandering after holy elsewandering without yours truly. [:S]

Though, years ago, I have gone with my mom, dad and sibs to see New Frankland of the Great White North, and to Olde Yorktown and Olde Marytown therein.

At Olde Marytown I saw the World Show - Man and His World. Forsooth twas eye-opening! [:D]
