I like this word very much. The sound of it is a little reminiscent, to me of Old English, or maybe that is because of some characters used. In any case I like the sound of it, and its meaning is interesting. Maybe it could have even extents wider than the merely translation of “funny, etc”.

I imagined it could also be used of a memory which could induce you to smile. =)

2. Sylvia says:

Yes, it can mean inducing a smile, or rather inducing jālne. Normally there would be a stative noun anālne which would have that meaning, but anālne generally means smiling, having a smile, (having sālne). So, yes, a memory could definitely be described with anriēnneþa.

I like that. I think it’s a great word, Nice job! Now every time I have a nice memory I will think I had an “anriēnneþa”.

4. Sylvia says:

a nice memory = jaxōna jariēnneþa

I’m having a nice memory/I’m remembering something nice: sele jaxōna jariēnneþa OR sele lexōna jariēnneþa
where jaxōna is the inanimate singular form of ‘memory’ and lexōna is the 1p possessed form of ‘memory’. Either is correct.
