Núta - Jan 19

twekhí·reku n.anim.* cockroach

*The ending -u would suggest this noun is animate. I haven’t decided whether insects are actually considered animate in Núta, but if they are not, the word-final -u might simply be a part of the stem.

Thanks to Znex for inspiring the word form, and a little sniff to the cockroach I accidentally killed this morning when I wiped my hands on the dish cloth it was hiding in.

Nakarian - Jan 19

Let's have some fun with this one.
Spoiler:
The changes in the word go like this: /ɸaʂra/ "to attack" > /hahra/+back harmony "to fight" > /haara/+back harmony + making preceding vowel checked "to wage war".
haara intransitive verb "to wage war". This stem triggers back vowel harmony on affixes, and makes a preceding vowel checked.
kạxxaara [kəχːaːɾa] noun of class 4 army
Spoiler:
From underlying *key-hahra+back_harmony > kạȝ-haara > kạxxaara
mâhaara noun of class 1 soldier
ṿṿôhaara [vˤːohaːɾa] noun of class 12 battlefield
Spoiler:
From underlying *ivo-hahra+back_harmony > ɯ̯vo-haara > ṿṿôhaara
I forgot to mention that my word for bird was inspired by the Nuta word for it. Thanks Des!

Núta - Jan 22

íwı·wėhsa n.inan. wind

Inspired by Gestaltist’s entry above, the stem of this noun contains a reduplication of the Proto-Núta root *miixəs - to blow.
