A small taste

Of how Saalangal affixes look in use. Surprisingly from one root i got a
good amount of subsequent nouns. This is a small taste, a petit fours of
Saalangal, if you will :)

iwári - harvest
iwariray - place of harvest, an agricultural field
iwaritagad - instrument of harvest (traditionally the rice harvesting
raiwaringat - the farmer
caniwari - the field worker
maiwari - the harvest (what is harvested in totality)
kataiwarion - many harvests
duiwarian - harvest time
haiwaritanin - the record of the harvest
aruiwari - study of the harvest (what was evaluated and learned from it)
iwariyas - a small harvest
paliiwari - from the harvest

Remember kids, between two vowels exists an obligatory glottal stop
(although in fast speech it can dissapear and the vowels become more like
dipthongs. but try not to do that :))

As always, c = /tS/
