And what if we cheat? :P No, really, Teonaht boasts only two: karrenda ganddon, "huge whirlwind" (for "hurricane"), randoahtle, "kingliness" (for "sovereignty"--not the closest match), and three if you want to stretch it: tsyttsytsa for "cricket." Since cicada can also mean cricket in Latin. :) Actually, tree-cricket, so it's a stretch. Tsytsytsa etont: "tree cricket." There. And didn't we have a recent Conlang Relay where somebody or something got thrown out of a window? :) Sally
