Mayali

Glyph of the word 'mayali'.

mayali

  • (n.) a general word for any sea plant, including seaweed and algae, but also algae-like substances growing on the land

A mayali ie uela lileveya.
“Algae is the moss of the sea.”

Notes: So now I get what I meant when I wrote the definition to uela. Mayali can be used to talk about moss, but uela is another term that refers solely to moss as its found on the land (not to algae).

This iku is a straightforward combination of the syllabic glyphs for ma, ia and li. As I recall, I was surprised by how well it fit together, and that’s what prompted me to coin a word for the phonetic form mayali. I think it’s a good one.
