kwíngaks [kwiˈŋaks] n. pea soup

In the native orthography, this could also be read [ʑiˈŋaks]. In an irregular twist, the former is actually the preferred reading for this one as it lends a rustic, just-like-Gran-used-to-make-it air to the proceedings. Should you find yourself in an upper-end restaurant in Gdhírs, however, and they're getting all "nouvelle" on your ass, your snooty-pants waiter may direct your attention to the [ʑiˈŋaks] on the menu.

évagarha [ˌevagaˈXa] interj. well, I'll be damned! who'd a thunk it?! knock me over with a feather!

As the verb "évagaktezh", "be surprised", was already in the lexicon, this seemed a natural extention.
