(‘e–mih) (mih–üm)
Word of the Day: hëlás
n. blood
It should be noted that the Tim Ar generally classify words much differently than the typical listing of parts of speech: There are "rocks" (nominals, verbs), "currents" (adjectives, adverbs, prepositions, determiners), and "debris" (everything else). Nonetheless, in entries in this dictionary, the parts of speech are listed using a more typical form, in part so that non-native speakers will be able to suss out various fine differences in meaning that may not be obvious.

The sound described as /S/ is called sa ngö cen ("wandering S"). It has many dialect-dependent realizations and comes from a historical *θ. In the Imperatorial dialect it has merged with /s/ [z]. Other realizations include /f/ [v], /w ~ xʷ/, /x/ [ɣ], /Ø/, /h/ [ɦ], and /j/.
