If there are going to have pirates speaking Kēlen, then I need a word for pirate. maþālōn can also be used to refer to kidnappers and thieves, since the root -þāl- means seize, take, capture.
la liēn λi maþālōn malūta Ropertes; wa mammārenien rēha;
I am the Dread Pirate Roberts. There will be no survivors.
This is a new word coined from two roots: -īλ- and -wēr-, roughly cloth + name. So, flag, for the most part.
pa ñiēþ jīlwerrenle anxōnne ja ñi anλāta;
Our flag means death.
So some people contacted me about using Kēlen in an RPG, which is fine by me, as it is non-commercial use. In their game, the pirates speak Kēlen!
More pirate vocabulary in a few days!
This is the opposite of yesterday’s word, and is derived from the modifier nō.
