Nalash trupin - to dwell, inhabit, live, rest; visit

I don't know if anyone has posted these before, but these translations were fun for me and I'd love to see tons for them:

Orcíl’ Ic Órin! “Hear me roar!”
Jígamo Argýmsi “Winter is coming”
Nozmo Duvól Spit “Ours is the fury”
Sauva Agár iš "Fire and Blood"
Zor Lokór, Zor Gasaji "Dark Wings, Dark Words"

If nobody wants to translate those, then just do so for "pumpkin." Mine is þonkəl.
I like my languages how I like my women: grammatically complex with various moods and tenses, a thin line between nouns and verbs, and dozens upon dozens of possible conjugations for every single verb.

If that's [θoŋkəl], I love that. I'm assuming the stress is on the first syllable though.

Right and right! It's one of my favorite words. Your move, good sir/madam. You word is "pumpkin."
