## ÅrÅ«

ÅrÅ«

You saw ÅrÅ« in yesterday’s post. It means 100 in base 8, so 64 in base 10. An alternate form is Änoru which emphasizes the 1 in 100. The –Å« suffix is used several times in numbers and kinda sorta means “squared”. And since År is the stem for 10 (or 8 in decimal form), ÅrÅ« is År squared.

## Åraen

Åraen

We’re on this sentence in the 17th Conlang Relay Text:

se jarÅ«lÅn to jakÄ“rÃ¾e Ä« Ã±i jakÄ“rÃ¾i Åraen rÄ xÅ;
The horse made a loud cry and then…Ã±i jakÄ“rÃ¾i Åraen rÄ xÅ;

Åraen is another number. It means 10,000 in base 8, which is 4096 in base ten, but really it’s not that exact, and “thousands” is a good translation. “and then thousands of horses went to there”. “came/went to there” is the literal translation, but “arrived” also works.

se jarÅ«lÅn to jakÄ“rÃ¾e Ä« Ã±i jakÄ“rÃ¾i Åraen rÄ xÅ;
The horse made a loud cry and then thousands of horses arrived.

## Årra

Årra

We’re on sentence 6 of the Babel text:

il aÃ¾ Ã±i Î»i ÄrÅn rÄ Äke tÅ sema mo sarÅÃ±a jamÄonre nÄ«kan jakÅnÅr ja Årra Ã±atta;

Årra is a past tense marker denoting completion.

“And then the Lord went there to see the city and the tower that they had built.”

## jÅl

jÅl

the top of something. This is related to the postpositional modifier Ål, which I blogged about earlier. That completes all the nouns in the fourth sentence of the Babel text.

Ä“ teteÃ± ien hÄ“ja Ã±anna jamÄonre nÄ«kan jakÅnÅr ja Ã±i jÅl rÄ anÄ«stÄ«li;

As for the rest, it should all be straightforward. The only word in there I haven’t mentioned before is ja.

## Ål, rÄjÅl, & rÅ«jÅl

Ål

The modifier Ål refers to the top of something. This is related to the word sÅlle ‘head’. RÄ NP Ål is to the top of NP or over NP and rÅ« NP Ål is from the top of NP or from above NP.

rÄjÅl

rÄjÅl is rÄ NP Ål without a specified location, and so means ‘to the top’ or ‘over’.

rÅ«jÅl

Likewise rÅ«jÅl is rÅ« NP Ål without a specified location, and so means ‘from the top’ or ‘from above’.

## sÅrwe

sÅrwe

one’s leg or legs.

The upper and lower parts of the legs (and of the arms for that matter), are described using annÅ and anpÄ“xa. So sÅrwe janÅ is the upper leg or thigh, and sÅrwe japÄ“xa is the lower leg or calf. Likewise with satÄka janÅ, the upper arm, and satÄka japÄ“xa, the lower arm or forearm. annÅ and anpÄ“xa generally mean near and far respectively. In this usage, the point of reference is the torso (sasÄtten).

## sÅlle

sÅlle

one’s head, everything from the neck up.

pa sÄen sÅlle jÅnÅna lÄ;
He has a huge head! (discussing size, here)
