auçíts [ɔˈɕits] n. a wisp/soupçon/trace of a lingering scent (usually meant positively)

It could mean anything, from a woman leaving a room with a hint a rose behind her, a chicken cooking in sage from we know not where (well, of course, we do, but we can use this to describe something smelling good from elsewhere); such as applies to males, well, of course, men apply cologne (at least in the period we're describing), but it could also apply to male muskness (not BO), after a full game of tennis before you bathe before dinner. Perhaps I watch too much period drama; the scents would be brandy, tobacco smoke, and belched some sort of heavy sauce.

帮倒忙 is an incredibly useful word (and your explanation is word-for-word identical to the iciba definition), and inspired by this, I will incorporate the concept into Géarthnuns, though I think it will be placed elsewhere in the lexicon. For what's on offer here, I think I'm channelling Géarthnuns-speakers as saying:

koniders [ˈkonɪˌdɛɾs] n. "third wheel"
konidezh [ˈkonɪˌdɛʒ] vi. play gooseberry, be the third wheel
tenir la chandelle (Thanks for teaching me the expression, Plus belle la vie! [xP] )
當電燈泡 (feel the light bulb -- be the light bulb [xD] )
