In Urianian I have at least: ímid - play (the fiddle) irvan - (fiddle) player jabul - fiddle (oblique jabl-), all derived from IE ĝheigh-. There are several terms for "sing" with various nuances: gende - sing (general) gendid - sing a song in the old style, long-winded, high-pitched and monotonous milde - sing to someone, a praise song or love song aspid - sing a hymn or heroic song of many verses. Also I have: genug - singer (oblique geng-), rather popular as a first name in fact. LEF
