1. bless = suslhêla (< sûsis, well, + lhêla, wish)

She blessed me softly (i.e. in a soft voice).

4. sorcerer/wizard/magician/shaman = mââjus; I will
separate "shaman" from this group later.

Conculture Note: Before the Great Sundering only the mages, the
first created, the Children of Air, had access to magic.  After the
Great Sundering, other loquent peoples began to dabble in magic in
the form of the Black Arts.  These are the sorcerers, wizards and
magicians.  (We're not talking about sleight-of-hand here.)  Thus a
sorcerer, by definition, cannot bless.

Mage = sêfdzus < sêfdza, to use magic energy.

That mage usually blesses our charms for us.

10. prayer =  mêlðos < mêlða: 1) t.v. pray, intercede (for, jho);
