Thomas R. Wier asked  how do y'all say "damnable
bureaucracy" in your conlangs?

"famüxatix björokrasha" Vash borrows words that are common across natural
languages, only adapting them to its own ohonetic and morphological norms.
"-müx-" (the "ü" has the value of schwa and "x" that of "kh" in Russian
transcription). -Müx- is the all-purpose root of Vash obscenity and actually
means something a bit stronger than "damnable."
