Fewer posts this week I’m afraid! Tough week. Hopefully I’ll have some ideas sorted out for next week!
I found an awesome usage of word building today: branĉido = sprout/shoot
- Branĉo = branch
- -id suffix means “offspring of <root>”, “born of <root>”.
- Pronounced “branch-ID-o”
Now, there is a word “ŝoso” (pronounced “SHO-so”, quite pretty itself), which means “sprout/shoot”. But I like the logic of “branĉido”!
The “-id” suffix can also be used metaphorically. There is a another constructed language called “Ido” based off of Esperanto, short for “Esperantido”, offspring of Esperanto! 🙂
