And yes, that's me.

This is the end of the second series of images for the Pictorial Dictionary. There are more words in the lexicon, but the rest are things I can't figure out a way to show as illustrations. I'll still work on this for awhile, though. I'm converting the earlier illustrations to the style I used for the second series, and I'm going to go back to some of the illustrations I'm not happy with to see if I can find better pictures. But as for new illustrations... In the immortal words of Porky Pig, th-th-th-that's all, folks! ;)

As part of the project to unify the appearances of the illustrations, I've edited the cardinal directions into separate images.

This is the beginning of a third series, although it'll be much, much shorter than the first two. Richard A. Watson has sent me some new words to illustrate... or, in this case, a definition for a word we didn't know the meaning of before. Previous guesses for what it meant were "source", "heart", "extent"; and "fruit". Turns out none of them were correct.

I can't thank RAWA enough for this -- I didn't even ask him to send me the list. He offered to do the research of his own volition. This should end up with about five new illustrations.

A bonus word extrapolation: åtinor (n. beauty) --> åtinoret (adj. beautiful).

The first of the brand spankin' new words I have. The shiny hasn't even worn off yet! :D

Bonus extrapolation: garkal (n. storm) --> garkalets (adj. stormy).

With this word, we now have the answer to a long-unsolved puzzle. No one could ever figure out what the Age name Teledahn meant. As it turns out, that's because it is a compound word made up of pieces of other words: ToELEmartē naDANets, which means "Place (of) Mushroom Spores". Another mystery solved!

This is likely to be it for now. RAWA said that he'd give me five new words, and definitions for existing, undefined or wrongly defined ones probably count. But that's still five confirmed words, more than we usually get in years.

"Perhaps the ending has not yet been written."

Seems I'm not quite as done as I thought.

Bulldozer is the kind of machine that shokrotan refers to, but the literal translation is dirtmover.

...Sort of, but not quite. It's a little more complicated than that, because words like "out", "made of", "from", and "of" are all a single concept in D'ni. If we want to sum it up as one word in English, "from" would be better. However, when translating, because it covers several words that are different concepts in English, the right thing to do is to use the word that matches the context of the sentence.

It literally translates as "out (of) place".

And this really is the last one I have. For now at least. Maybe RAWA will get into the mood to share more words in the future, but that's something I can't make any guesses about. I can't complain, though. I never expected to have this last set of words in the first place, and it went on longer than he said it would. So again, much thanks are owed.

It can also just mean "mist".
