I didn't reply, because I didn't have anything interesting, but it's been several weeks, so here you go...

Tormiott:
sihua ˈsiɕwa (n) horn (animal, acoustics)

______

next: nobleman (or any type of high rank within your con-society)

I always like the background stories he posts, if that's what you mean to address (as the sole purpose of this thread is, in fact, sharing the lexicon of your conlang).

I always try to share some thoughts on the etymology for the words I post, to make it more interesting for other people who actively read this thread (if there any, haha)

Yeah, I enjoy this thread and I wish it was moving faster like it did a few years ago. Back then I used to post even more elaborate responses, but lately I've had less time to spare.

Tormiott (Rockall):

atiarh ˈɛtɕaɹ (n) to sear, to scorch, to burn the surface of; to fry; to cause to wither
- a- (pref) transitive
- tiarh (n) gold (also tiarhstanda); (v) to fade; to wilt, to wither; to be yellow; to be golden


I had to look up when deep frying could have realistically reached my concountry (being a rather far flung place west of Ireland and south of Iceland). I ended up using the Old Norse word for frying or roasting more specifically for deep frying:

staicia ˈstɛːtɕa (v) to deep fry {from ON steikja, to fry, to roast}

The passive form, stâiciaio ˈstɛːtɕɪjʊ, can be used attributively to say that a situation is out of control or has gotten out of hand.

I also came up with the following food item:

nouhmosie ˈnuːhməɕə (n) oblong or round deep fried dough puffs made with yeast and wheat flour, eaten with soups or stews to soak up the broth, or separately as a sweet or savory snack

It literally means 'jittering fish'

Tormiott (Rockall):

I hate it when you go through a regular process of derivation, and end up with something stupid (like my word for 'to depart', which is condome...). Well, I guess this is one female given name that won't catch on in my concountry.

manuella ˈmɛnwəlːa (n) acre
- man- (pref) past; beside, alongside, next to; flanking, on both sides, complementary, around, encasing. nearby
- uella ˈwəlːa (n) tilled land, field for growing crops (compare duoi) {from ON vǫllr, field, meadow}

_______

next: stitch (textile)

Tormiott (Rockall)

pidadol ˈpiðɪðəl (n) drinking bird, dipping bird; yes-man, bootlicker, groveler {active participle of pidol}
(v) to parrot, to repeat mechanically, to repeat mindlessly; to blindly follow (a leader)
- pi- pi (pref) small, little; short; low (reach); decreasing, shrinking, becoming smaller, diminishing (only used if this is an inherent feature)
- dol ˈdol (v) to dip {active participle of ol, but reanalyzed as a full verb}
- - ol ol (v) to be deep


The active participle essentially essentially 'ol' with three times the conjugation for the active participle (disregarding the prefix). That's because 'dol' (deepening) was reanalyzed as a full verb (to dip), and that was used as a noun, which then ended up being used as a verb. And the active participle of this verb is then the 3rd time: ol → dol → dadol → pidadol → pidadadol /ˈpiðɪˌðɛðəl/.

_____________
next: judgment

Tormiott (Rockall)

miucain ˈmyːkɛːn (v) to cuddle; (n) stuffed toy, stuffed animal; wimp, sissy, wuss (colloq., often as tiaucathmiucain or tiaumiucain)
- miu- (pref) in the stomach or abdominal region (seen as the center of well-being, love and excitement); in front of, ahead of, towards the front of, to the start of, at the beginning
- cain (v) to grab; to clutch; to clasp onto, to attach, to link up

As for tiaucathmiucain : it is a combination of the diminutive tiau-, and a prefix cath-, which is used for endearment, but also relief or making things sound less serious or impressive. Both prefixes are quite productive and are used to show emotional attitude.

__________

(edit) Took too long...

I guess we can simply say riccaciult ˈɾikːakyːlt, from:
- ricca ˈɾikːa (n) hero {from ON rekkr, warrior}
- ciult kyːlt (n) cult; dedicated following, dedicated fan base {from LA cultus via FR culte}


__________

next: fletchings (of an arrow)

In North Pannonian, there's no particular word for this other than the general term for 'hold oneself back':
dēšíˀfi 3sg. pres. ipfv., dēšúhaifi inf., dḗšvaˀfi 3sg. past pfv., dḗšer part., dēšä́ˀfi 3sg. subj.
(Derived reflexive verbs have no participle; instead, one uses the underived verb with the passive participle.)

combined with the general term for 'mention':
mention:
vīlýžiˀ 3sg. pres. ipfv., vīlýžuhai inf., vīláˀž 3sg. past pfv., vīlýžt part., vīlä́ˀ 3sg. subj.

so, dēšúhaifi vīlyžmá 'refrain from mentioning'

Next word: humidity

Tormiott (Rockall)

tharec ˈθaɾək (v) to rescue, to save
- thar- (pref) pertaining to water
- ec (v) to link, join; to fasten, tie, bind

Since it's a seafaring island nation, I guess it makes sense that I came up with this etymology

ueramporh ˈwəɾampəɹ (v) to protect, to shield
- ueran- (pref) containing, enclosing, closing, surrounding, all-encompassing, complete, whole, covering, wrapping, protecting
- porh (prep) in front of; for a reason; against (protecting, compare estior, tior iccad) (n) front

____

next: coat hanger
