Óhxiixama

December 8th (0:00 am!)

onarawabín – to be what amount? to be how many?

Related to other words ending on -bín which also have to do with amounts.

A shortened form onshbín is also commonly used:

onshbín únuusuta? - how many houses are there? (very very tentative)

I like this cause it creates an opportunity to make up other numeral-related words for Lexember later on.

By the way, DesEsseintes, c'mon man, where are your words? I need something to steal!
Edit: Changed the word

Never done Lexemeber before. Also haven't updated Odki since I lost Excel. But I've been wanting to continue to expand its lexicon, so here we go. Suppose I ought to do seven words today to catch up (in all fairness, I had 4 already mostly done). I may also start on some other languages of mine (one needs an entire lexicon after I disbanded it).

December 7th

Odki

Ridoga - Navigate v
[ɾid.o.ga]

Okito - Squid n
[ok.i.to]

Ikarod - Deep Feeling adj/n - A strong emotion that lies hidden under the surface of one’s outward emotional state, i.e. someone is really depressed but doesn’t actually show it through their behavior, can be applied to any emotion
[ik-a-ɾod]

Ex:

The girl used to tease the boy because she actually loved him dearly.
igdedo edte táogtá táogtá piqa igtodko edtod ikarod nobkognobkér
[ig.de.do ed.tʰe tæ.ʔog.tæ tæ.ʔog.tæ pi.qa ig.tʰod.kʰo ed.tʰod ik.a.ɾod nob.kʰog.nob.kʰɛɾ]
boy-Acc.I girl tease<Hab.Pst> ø because M-3sg-Acc F-1Sg deeply love<Pfv.Pst>

Tikvándag - Murder n
[tik.ʋæn.dag]

Tabod - Apologize v
[ta.bod]

Kakto - "Excuse Me" or similar sentiment
[kak.to]

Pitgo - Problem n
[pit ̚.go]

Bonus Word (needed for translation above; could have used "annoy," but...)

Tátá - Irritate/Tease
[tæ.tæ]

I know I'm two hours early for day 8, but I just need to steal this:

See, how I would Sawaanize this word would be Litonga-which happens to contain "Tonga" the Sawaan word for "canoe", so I guess Li- could be a verbalazation prefix meaning "to use X"
Thus Day 8:
Litonga
"To sail"

Dec 8th - Odki


Tteki - Ignore v
[ʈe.ki]

Incidentally, Ttekido sing & Tekido laugh are very similar, so perhaps that means something? I might switch sing and laugh in my lexicon, that way "ignore" is essentially a shortened version of "laugh." I'm thinking maybe it developed by means of "laughing someone off."
