Let's get building our lexicons. It's easy to find a list of common words and translate them, but it's more fun to make it a game. It's as simple as this. I give a word to start. Somebody who doesn't already have a word for that in their lexicon makes one and then gives a word for the next person. Because I'm such a generous guy, I'll go ahead and give an example first.

The person before me wrote:
relax

giz (gir, giz, girum) n. relaxation, rest, peace, silence. v. relax, rest.

Since I don't usually like to exactly recreate English words, I've given a full dictionary definition with the more precise meaning of the word (including other forms). Also because this is going straight into my dictionary. But do what you want.

And your starter word is: dizzy

hezketl - currency bead.

There are no coins in the conworld of Aptaye - most market transactions are done in a town market where beads are distributed to facilitate trading, so the currency is not a commodity in and of itself.

eye
