I think I figured out my dilemma from yesterday. I think jaxÄ«ra is the most basic word for sound or noise and jasÄora is a more specific word for sound or noise made by an animate being. This distinction of animate vs non-animate is a theme of KÄ“len, so that works.
On to today’s word. anÅ«ma is an attribute of sound, meaning loud. It is sometimes glossed merely as noise, since in the inanimate singular, it would mean a loud noise.
Ã±i sÄen matÄra il jahÅÎ»en Änen ansÅha Änen anÅ«ri jÅ«ma Ä“mma;
He fell for a long time with silence except for the noise of the air.
the wind. This is the default word for wind considered as a singular entity. The collective anÅ«rÄni can be used for wind as a series of gusts, but more often the collective anÅ«ri is used instead. (The –Än– in the root –Å«rÄn– is a singular marker.)
the air, the atmosphere. This word can also refer to any movement in the air. Thus anÅ«ri can be used to refer to wind, or to blowing air, or the rushing by of air.
Ã±amma anÅ«ri nÄ Ä mÅ«rÄna masÄ«rien
The North Wind made much moving-air.
Wind is in the animate singular here rather than the usual inanimate singular as above because the North Wind is a character in the story.
one’s anus or asshole.
Turning this body part into an animate noun leads to two different terms – one insulting and one affectionate.Â The insulting term is mÅ«xa which describes a person who says things to deliberately cause harm. These things don’t have to be lies, they just have to be intended to cause harm. So a malicious person.
The other term mÅ«xisse is an informal term using an old diminutive and refers to people (or other dependents) one has to continually clean up after. The term expresses both affection and aggravation.
Ã±amma sÅ«sne jaciÄ“Ã±a;
He stuck out his tongue.
What that would mean culturally to the KÄ“leni I have no idea. Any suggestions?
