@_discord_399972304383377408:t2bot.ioGolo joined the room.13:05:57
@_discord_605248001790705664:t2bot.ioEktor#8929 Perhaps. By the way, we have plugi/plucu for "multiply". That doesn't make sense. Esperanto has "multobligi". multiplegi? 17:19:03
@_discord_605248001790705664:t2bot.ioEktor#8929 Yeah? 17:21:04
@_discord_605248001790705664:t2bot.ioEktor#8929 Since bio is a non-count noun, I'm not sure adding max- makes sense. Perhaps maxbioyencu? 17:34:48

@_discord_605248001790705664:t2bot.ioEktor#8929 Never mind... max is also used with noncount nouns. Max roti, etc. 17:37:04
@_discord_605248001790705664:t2bot.ioEktor#8929 Maxbio seems to work. 17:38:24
@_discord_605248001790705664:t2bot.ioEktor#8929 Ok, so produsi should now be produti (product/produce).
I'm still looking into using -si rather than -syon for all those other less frequently used words longer than two syllables, as in depresi and obsesi. Let's entertain that possibility...

We also have evolu (evolve/evolution). Based on that we can probably just omit -syon altogether if the root ends in any vowel, not just in -a (rekomenda, etc.), so long as the root is at least three syllables long. Otherwise, the word would be too short and not as recognizable: depre and obse don't work. However, if the root ends in -a two syllable roots do work because these would be naturalistic: rota (rotate/rota- in Spanish). muta (mutation, mutate) would be another example. Or should -a words also add -si if they are disyllabic? rotasi, mutasi? That would give us a simpler set of guidelines.

We also have inklusi and exklusi. These look like derived words because of in- and ex- but they're roots since klusi doesn't mean anything. These have -si rather than -syon! However, since these are commonly used words they should be like diskuti, which are sourced from verbs, so in fact, these should be inkludi/exkludi. That also avoids the possible confusion with klosi.

@_discord_605248001790705664:t2bot.ioEktor#8929 Getting back to the omission of -syon, that would also gives us reputa (which is what we have) rather than reputasi. But it would also give us genera (generation) rather than generasi. That's not too bad, but it would then give us generali for generational! It looks like we would need a caveat here. If the word is not typically used as a verb, then -si is added to vowel-ending roots: reputasi and generasi. 18:28:11
@_discord_605248001790705664:t2bot.ioEktor#8929 Anyway... this should help: https://www.thefreedictionary.com/words-that-end-in-tion 18:29:42
@_discord_605248001790705664:t2bot.ioEktor#8929 revolution/revolutionize is interesting. There a word ending in -tion with -ize on top of it to turn it into a verb. In Spanish the verb is just revolucionar. 18:31:29

@_discord_705568321487241259:t2bot.io朝霞るる/白瀬るの How do we express color names (as nouns)?
It seems that colors are adjectives by default.
22:01:51
@_discord_705568321487241259:t2bot.io朝霞るる/白瀬るの I thought of [color] to, but it sounds more like the set of things that has the color (rather than the color itself). 22:06:02
@_discord_229407329374699521:t2bot.ioGunther I've wondered about this, too. I asssume by adding -ya 22:06:16
@_discord_229407329374699521:t2bot.ioGunther jalo - yellow
jaloya - yellowness, the color yellow
