Next: mayhem
Pazmat: Thōtorgwa, from torya "to hit" and suffixed with -gwa (forms nouns meaning a general state or collectiveness), and then prefixed with thō- (an augmentative). "Torgwa" is just violence, so "Thōtorgwa" is "extreme/great violence".

To leave mother's hill/house for a time.

Be careful not to say it in the stative (Knóuk l ôsolo mp ât.) because that means "to break societal norms".
