Alama

Glyph of the word 'alama'.

alama

  • (n.) sand crab
  • (nm.) a boy’s given name

A tomi ei ie alama oi’i ti Akavo!
“I call my sand crab Akavo!”

Notes: The iku for alama is kind of interesting. It’s built out of two glyphs: the iku for maka which means “crab”, and the syllabic iku for ta, which is also the word for “sand”. The combination, then, is not phonological, but kind of ideological. Looks good, though!
