Nitherian word: lozhwe “squid meat”

From: Old Maritime ɭudʒwø, plural of ɭudʒu “squid”.

For the animal itself, Nitherian uses a native compound esenopyasla, literally “water-darkener”, referring to its ink-squirting.

Example:

Chnpyashinwesho lozhwe.

[tɕn̩.pja.ɕiˈnwe.ɕo
chnpya-sh-inwe-sho
cook.fish-BEN.APPL-nose-3s
ˈlo.ʑwe]
lozhwe
squid.meat
We could smell the squid cooking.
