seals couples together as companions, and that children of the Dhabra, the
Earthenfolk, are washed out from the sides of river bank or exhumed from the
ground and then adopted by the couple fated to adopt them. Acceptable sex
partners, however, are agnatic first cousins of the opposite gender and the
one whom one is fated to marry (if s/he is not in the first category).
>The verb "taris" means to have sex with.The word in Early Lahabic is gyeno'd- (mate). It is intransitive:
Gyeno'deimondla Ro'trama'ro'tra'khe ned Mu'su'detyeiendro'ndrakhe.
Ro'trama'ro'tra'khe and Mu'su'detyeiendro'ndrakhe had sex.
>Or it can be transitive, carrying with it a connotation of the >ergative
>being the top and the absolutive being the bottom:In Lahabic, transitive use of gyeno'd- indicates that subject of the
sentence mated two other animate beings.
Gyeno'deimon Ro'trama'ro'tra'khe waru'ragen.
Ro'trama'ro'tra'khe bred the horses (note the use of the dual ending -gen).
Reflexive use means 'to mastubate'.

>dor (penetrate with a finger; literally, prod)
>tespa (penetrate with an object; literally, exercise a skilled trade)
>elyú (penetrate with a tongue, or lick)
>zego (be penetrated by; literally, surround)Lahabic
