ancāelle

the quality of being juicy.

Since ancāelle is a stative noun, it has to agree with the noun it modifies, even if that noun is not directly expressed. So:

la jajāla jacāelle; ‘The fruit is juicy.’

la jacāelle; ‘It is juicy.’

  1. Actually, it does come from the same root as ‘fruit’ (which will appear as a word very soon), but its meaning has expanded to include any kind of juice.
