      Hails!

      Sumaim izwara ist aufto faurawaurpa "Hauha-froniska" ju kunþa; jus
      izwizei swa so nist waurdaleista ize sokjan maguþ her:
      http://www.hafronska.org/pages/loadlists.php?cat=32
      Faurawaurpa duginniþ hrainjan Eisalandiska þo ju filuhrainidon.
      Ahmatidamma mis þairh suma niujawaurde ize wisandin atbaira
      *woþjon (qn. "sukkair" < Gu. woþeis), ana ustaikna gasulidon
      þamma Hauha-froniskin "sæta" < Eis. sætur. Anþaraim ist
      raihtis *sukkair (nhva.). Jah unte galaistida laistai gaumawairþai
      waurde "ammaunia" jah "ameino", ustaikna nu "ameinoaket" swa:
      *hairutahaurnasurjo. Aþþan aufto daug gamaurgid wisan andizuh
      hairutasurjon aiþþau haurnasurjon. Namo hairutahaurn þugkeiþ af
      alþja-aggiliskamma uhtja wisan; was auk faura at imma uftost bigitan
      þatei haitano "salammaunjak". Mitodaþþan þatei ni weseina hijos
      bokos fullos nibai usbigeti skeirein waurdis "paipr": *tugga-stikils
      (ga.) aiþ. aufto *kusti-stuggeis (gi.mr.). Jah ei laibam galeikai:
      *pipair (nhva.)


      I'm sure some of you are familiar with the Hafronska project. For those
      who aren't, you can search their wordlist here:
      http://www.hafronska.org/pages/loadlists.php?cat=32
      The project is attempting to "purify" already greatly purified
      Icelandic. Drawing inspiration from some of their neologisms, I offer
      *woþjo (fn.) "sugar" < Go. woþeis 'sweet', based on the Hafronsk
      rendering of sæta < Ic. sætur. For others there is of course
      *sukkair (na.) Also, after following an interesting etymology of
      "ammonia" and "amino", I render "amino acid" thus:
      *hairuta-haurna-surjo. But maybe this should be shortened to either
      *hairuta-surjo or *haurna-surjo. Hart's horn was from an OE term
      apparently, and a chief source once of sal ammoniac. Also, I thought
      this post wouldn't be complete unless I had made a word for pepper:
      *tugga-stikils (ma.) or perhaps *kusti-stuggeis (mi.pl.). And to please
      the rest: *pipair (na.)
