pamrel n. "writing"; pamrel si for "to write"

tutan n. "male (person)"

nìayoeng adv. "like us, as we do" (pronounced as nayweng).

tam adv. "enough" (after an adjective)

äie n. "vision" (spiritual)

yol adj. NOTE NOTE NOTE — the definition of this given in the ASG is backwards!  This means "short (of time)".

sran conv. "yeah," a shortened version of srane

weyn v. "draw, illustrate"

trr adv. "today"

fratrr adv. "every day"
'Awa lì'fya ke tam kawkrr.
