ObConlang.  This discussion, at least, led to the discovery of 3 (or 9) new
words in Kash:

from an older form of _mambre_ 'brother' (< **marme < *már@mi)
marem ~ marenji (dim.) ~ marende (<marem+leñ 'good') term of affection
between very close male friends; marem, marenji _may_imply a sexual
relationship, marende definitely does.

similarly from a var. of suya 'sister', susa ~susaci ~susale 'idem, between

and from kambra 'friend':  karam ~karanji ~karande 'idem, between friends of
any gender'
