Re: petaQ, tlhIngan Hol yIghojqu'

The new word lIvqa'nan sounds like "leave Canaan". What do you suppose the given meaning, "doorframe [something constructed to hold a door or gate, whether the door/gate is there or not]", has to do with it?

Good idea! We have a similar thread for animal names, but nothing yet for compounds in general.

Back to space travel. The unwritten minimum number of words for a category in the LCV seems to be 13 -- the number of entries under Simple Life-forms, and the number of entries under Mail.

I forgot to mention some things that you may wish to consider in your Landau core vocabulay: In many parts of New Guinea, body parts and numbers are very closely related (by means of the extended body part system ); thus, many body parts and numbers could overlap.

Yes it’s spoken by cat people (bipedal ones, but not too anthro in style), but, they don’t eat the birds since the birds are much larger than they are (the bird people stand about 5.5 to 6 feet tall the cats only 4.5 to 5 feet tall). They wouldn’t hurt bird people (as that would ruin their cultural...

I've wanted to add "to launch (a rocket)" ever since I've added the other kinds of launching a month or two ago. However, I can't fit it into any of my existing categories. So I'm considering adding a new category for space travel. The only problem is that I can't think of enough potential words to ...
