sai [saɪ̯] v.i. "go along"

From that you may use either;

saicãgo [saɪ̯t͡sã↓ⁿgo] v.i. "constant, consistent" with cãgo [t͡sã↓ⁿgo] v.stat "same, equal"

or saicetrẽ [saɪ̯t͡se↓ʈʳẽ] v.i. "constant, consistent" with cetrẽ [t͡se↓ʈʳẽ] v.stat "even, flat".

There's a bit of a semantic difference between the two: for example a constant rattling would use the former, but a constant even tone the latter.

Next: neutral, non-partisan, apolitical, unbiased.

Kala:

muhya - /muːhʲa/ - neutral; apolitical

This could also mean "(to be) of no opinion" in an informal conversation

henka - /ɦɛːᵑka/ - bias; prejudice

So, to be "unbiased" would be henkanke, a bit of a hefty word, phonetically speaking. Similarly, uampanke would be "apolitical".

momo [ˈmɔ.mɔ] n. (vulgar) mother (esp. someone else's mother. cf. misy [ˈmi.ɕɨ], which can refer to both one's own and someone else's mother)

Momo is Vuase's version of "fuck" or "kurwa." It is a very versatile curse word. As a noun, it can be used to insult a person's mother, or insult anyone in general, mother or otherwise. It's more general than "slut" because it is gender nonspecific (similar to "cunt").
It can also be used as an interjection, expressing frustration or annoyance with something. And, the genitive momoa [mɔˈmɔ(w)ɜ] can be used as an adjective/intensifier.
Here's a quick example sentence using all three senses of the word:

Momo! Momo sed cobai poz obidar pincyi momoa sia!
[ˈmɔmɔ|mɔˈmɔ‿ɕɜ̥d̥ kɔˈbaj pɔz ɔˈbidɜr pinˈcji mɔˈmɔwɜ ɕjɜ]
momo|momo se-da coba-i poz obi-dar pincy-i momo-a si-a
mother|mother be-2S.IMPV corpse-ACC.SG REL eat-2S.PERF lunch-ACC.SG mother-GEN 1S.OBL-GEN

"Fuck! The cunt who ate my fucking lunch is a dead man!"
(I was just thinking today that I need to add cuss words into my personal language)

Poswa: pobapie, lit. "Don't say it!" , from poba "speak" plus the negative imperative.

Pabappa: possibly popep posu along the same lines, but this is hypothetical because the language does not have the same means of zero derivation from inflected verbs .... this would be a nonce coinage used like french "jns quoi"

Next: gymnasium, sports stadium
