shayimazham /ʃa.ya.ˈma.ʒam/ - v.t.- sun - to feel compersion, to take joy in the love that those you love share with others. Literally 'to braid-love'. (Note: this is realized as [ʃaɪ.ya.ˈma.ʒam])

Rhetorical Alchemy:
fluhnuhnt /flən.ənt/ - noun - schadenfreude (a common feeling in Asuran society)
fluhnt-CF
flunt is the verb for 'to gloat'. The root is projected, which turns it into a noun for 'the feeling of gloating'. Projection is a catalytic process, a process in which a catalyst is attached to a root word to derive a new word. A catalyst is an affix that is underspecified phonemically, so that the actual sounds used depend on word it attaches to. In projection, the catalyst is a ferment (abbreviated CF), which is infixed before the final coda of the word and is a nasal that matches the core of the core of the final coda and a vowel that matches the stressed vowel in the word. Other catalytic processes include amalgamation, corrosion, fusion, virtification and vitriolifaction, and use catalysts of mercury, acid, lime, and vitriol, respectively.

Day 16:
Sinnish:
ed /ed/ - n.c. - sun - a gift, a present

Rhetorical Alchemy
pauvalg /ˈpaʊ.valg/ - n.c. - a near-miss, a problem that has been narrowly avoided
pau-valg
pau is, of course, an explosion. The suffix valg attaches to something to mean it is 'almost' that. It's used in verbs to mean to try to do something but just barely miss it. It would also be used in terms like 'virtual reality' or 'titular head'.
