Fava

Glyph of the word 'fava'.

fava

  • (n.) dust
  • (adj.) dusty
  • (v.) to be dusty

A fava heka.
“The air is dusty.”

Notes: This is another one os those iku that I’m sure I had a good reason for, but whose raison d’être I can’t, at the moment, remember. It looks like it might have fa in there on top, but I can’t explain the extra lines. As for the “ground” determinative, that’s as it should be (or at least it makes sense to me [it’s below the dust, see]). I’m sure the etymology will come to me some day.
