Another fun thread for increasing the size of your conlang's lexicon. While the "CBB Lexicon Building" thread would have one person post a meaning and the next person make up that word in their conlang, this thread will instead have people post a word in their conlang and have the next person decide what it means. You can of course add some specifications you want the next person to follow. Perhaps you want it to be a verb? Or a noun?

Here's my word: uã /wa~/

I want it to be either an article, conjunction, adposition, or pronoun.

Have fun! [:)]
