Eldraeic Word of the Day: cagshálvéth

Originally published at: Eldraeic Word of the Day: cagshálvéth | The Eldraeverse

cagshálvéth: (lit. “sewer-food”; from cagshálla “sewer” + evéth “food”; the former itself from cagál “shit” + shálla “pipe”) a derogatory term applied to yeast-based and (especially) mycogenic foodstuffs, typically by outworld dirtsiders who haven’t figured out yet that a larger circle of life doesn’t mean that they aren’t eating as much shit as they’re talking. (Actually a much more common word in Trade than regular Eldraeic.)

In one of your previous conlang posts on Eldraeic, did you provide some kind of pronunciation guide for the language itself? I enjoy learning these new words and their etymology, and it’d be nice to know what they sound like when spoken.
