Lexember 2:

saltaom n /'saltaʊm/
the one and only


This word, a simple contraction of salta ("only") and om ("one"), emphasizes the fact that there is only one of something.

Any chance we could see this quote translated into Carpetanian?
Here it is:

It slipped past me that there was a new theme, so I got two words for today, as I'd already worked out one for the singularity theme.

Lexember 3:

Ancient Vaal

salto n /saltho/
heir

Derived from salta ("only"), my word for Lexember 1. Roots with the vowel pattern a-o often relate to persons, but this is not a hard and fast rule and also no longer productive, especially as some such vowel patterns have merged due to sound changes.

Tsulradal untạn kigávál-ì sālto ì-gfáda pabe gú!
ABS.Tsulradal PST betray-INTR.DEF POSS.heir INTR.DEF-IRR.die ABS.1pl INSTR

May the heirs of Tsulradal, those traitors (who are traitors/who betrayed), perish by our hand (through us)!


Without context, the use of the irrealis mood here is not very specific, so it could also be a simple future statement (but I think this is less likely!).

Now for something completely different:

nạkatka n /'nakhathkha/
heat

Derived from:
nakat-REDUP; nakat /'nakhath/ warmth

Sūfug vada pusa şáꞥ psant vada şkānú nạkatka
DEM CLF year LOC first CLF COP.POSS.spring heat

It was hot early this spring!

The ordinal number "first" (NB: like with all words used adjectivally, there is a distinction here, but this one also involves suppletion - psant is used for restrictive meanings, and ōm for non-restrictive meaning)can mean "early" , and is often used to replace şkana : "early", but also "morning". It is also not hard to see that skanu for spring and skana are related - another derivation through vowel changes.
