A tiny but useful fraction of the Lagiers vocabulary.

Eluyins - A standard unit of measurement of bio-electric current in Lagiers (10 Eluyins have been identified as sufficient to start a human heart, and appear to be not difficult to generate by most teenaged Lagiers. However, even when not fully matured, a Lagier can generate enough electric power to short out the systems on a small vessel, though posing a danger to his life. A fully mature and large sized Lagier could possibly launch the equivalent of a lightening bolt, if he wanted. Though, the physical effects this would cause to his body are unknown.)
Fountain of Corzba - a natural spring that feeds a large underground lake (its salty waters are believed to have just the right mixture to facilitate a flawless development in hatchlings; traditionally, females would fill their Vaggar with these waters when Muna-Awal was upon them)
Groex - a large furry animal with sharp claws and teeth, bat-like wings and a long tail with a spiky ending (its dropping can be quite big and acidy and are found all over the jagged cliffs that they inhabit)

Toza - Daughter
Ulrot - an in-depth and complicated ceremony at the end of the battle, commonly known as the only way to avoid a death sentence at the end of a duel. It most easily translates as an "absolute, unconditional surrender". It is said that the god of war, Halrucino, was challenged to a duel by the goddess of wisdom, Valruni. When Halrucino refused to fight her in light of her beauty, the only means Valruni could spare his life was for Halrucino to suffer the ultimate humiliation, the ulrot. In light of his unconditional servitude, and impressed by his choice of humility over death, Valruni demanded for Halrucino to take her as his mate. The offspring of the union between war and wisdom was Galiga, the goddess of peace. Galiga would go on to forge the instrument of peace: the nomnus.
Vaggar - a semi-translucent container into which a developing egg is placed (it roughly holds 25 liters of liquid, and has an opening up top the size of a small plate)

Xentara cliff - an enormous underground cliff formation (wind being channelled from the surface and blowing through its hollows has produced the most haunting sounds, a sort of natural "music"; the only music Lagiers know of, since they do not have man-made musical instruments)
