Say _that_ subject line three times fast! ;)
Emaelivpar David Stokes:

I find it a fascinating coicidence that your Diom word-phrase "shanivalote"
/SA"nIvA,lote/ could be a well-formed Asha'illen word!
shaniv -a -l- -o -te
VERB 3SF DO: UNS POL
3SF third person singular feminine
DO: direct object follows
So, if we let shaniv mean "to verb," |shanivalote| would translate into
Asha'ille as "She verbs someone(s) (that I want to show respect to)."
I think I'll make it mean "to wish someone peace/content" in Asha'ille.
Thanks for the word! :)
How does |shanivalote| parse in Diom? Has anyone else found false cognates
between unrelated conlangs?
