16th Lexember Word

meomá [me̞o̞̽ˈmäˑ], alienably possessed noun: “(tree) branch“

Today’s word is simply an example of the kinds of derivations from yesterday’s that are in common use. In terms of structure, this is quite simply a compound from the aforementioned : “tree, wood“ and the inalienably possessed noun omáse: “hand, forearm“ (in fact, it’s simply the phrase mé omá: “hand of a tree” used so often it ended up losing its first stress and becoming a single word, a common pathway of word formation in Haotyétpi).

No example today, I once again lack inspiration (and words, I must admit).
