One a side note, Shimo can I ask you to release the topic for the final week (29th-31st) on the 27th latest? I will not be available over new year's and would like to do the last days beforehand.
Oh, absolutely! You might have to remind me once we get closer to that time of the month, but I shouldn't have a problem coming up with something a few days earlier than expected.

Inaki

kãvi - dam n
kãvičə - fishing net n

Kãvičə is formed as a diminutive of kãvi with the suffix -čə. The rather close relation of these words to fishing means that non-fishing related dams and nets have often gained newly derived lexemes in ythe daughter languages, leaving the forms derived from these two words as more specialised fishing terminology.

Sei

rastel /ʀasˈtɛl/ [ʀɐsˈtɛw] rake
< Latin rastellum “rake, hoe”, diminutive of rastrum “rake”.

rastel fair /feʀ/ [fɛː] to be thrifty, to save money
< “to rake”, via the sense “to waste nothing”, seen from 13C. In the sense “be spendthrift”, it was originally a positive judgement, but by 18C was exclusively used to insult, in the sense “be miserly”.

Rien va par un bricot nouç lour rovant, com i fay rastel !
There’s no point asking him for a wedding present, he’s so miserly!

mogpodez n berry Etymology: little-fruit
kaxibai n bush, shrub (with leaves) Etymology: grass-tree
mogi n bush, shrub (with leaves) Etymology: little-tree

Example sentence:

ʔiʔi-mɛ mogpodez legtoma-du kaxibai hɛ
wood-LOC berry give.birth.to-APP bush COP

"There's bushes with berries in the (wooded) savannah/forest."

/ʔiʔi/, the old reduplicated plural of /ʔi/ = "tree", can either mean a savannah with trees (the homeland of the Bokisig people) or a wood; for the rainforest to the south of the savannah, however, the term /kasot/ = "eternal house/shelter" or "kom" is used.

Inaki

uvkə - plough n
tilkasə - plough v

Inland family

ofqa - plough n

Inaki uvkə is yet another example of an early Inland loan. The semantically corresponding verb tilkasə is formed with the generic verbalised -sə but its root tilka- is otherwise unattested. It's reasonable to interpret that this is the original native noun for "plough" that got replaced by a loan following the adoption of superior ploughing technology from the neighbouring Inland people.
