Axunashin lexicon vs Wede:i lexicon

Post by Exez »

I noticed some discrepancies between some Wede:i words mentioned as sources in the Axunashin lexicon, and the words in the Wede:i lexicon itself.

For now, I can recall the entry

Code: Select all

zurte    f    lust [W. zurtaa 'desire, love']


While the Wede:i lexicon has

Code: Select all

zu:rtau ‘want-take’, i.e. desire, want; love (sexually)


Another example is

Code: Select all

zenem    v    know (things, not people) [W. ze:n]


While the Wede:i lexicon has

Code: Select all

ze:nu    know


Also the Axunashin lexicon has several geographical names which derive from Wede:i yet they don't appear in the Wede:i lexicon. One example is

Code: Select all

Tural    m    Curau (ancient capital of Xurno) [W. Tu:ral 'crossroads oracle']


Tu:ral and other names such as Śimka:u, Kalye or Pikye, don't appear in the Wede:i lexicon and makes me wonder why

As a final note, the Axunashin lexicon mentions 'ming' as a Wede:i word for 'substance'. While there are some Wede:i words which end in -miŋ, it doesn't appear an as independent word in the lexicon.
