Today we’re going to move on to COMFORTABLE.
The word in Old Bear come from two words:
Tcha – this word, used almost entirely as a prefix by the time of Old Bear, means “Like, as, or with.”
Spes comes from the Before Words word spezzi, which meant the best way to be; as a matter of fact, a few remaining records show that this was considered to be one of the major tenents of the faith of the Sunrise People*
Tcha-spes, like the proper way to be … Chaspis, comfort.
But wait, we don’t want comfort, we want to be comfortable.
so we want to add a –fa to the end. The -fa just means – is this way, or -is capable of being this way.
EXCEPT sfa is sort of an awkward way ot talking
so in words ending in s
thus, we end up with
now, as for pronounciation
first syllable rhymes with chap
second one sounds like piss, but with a zzzz’d out s
and then the third is nearly ‘za, like the end of pizza.
* Once again, our terms are limited by the Bear-centric historical records. What we can tell – much of this is from hidden Elk records or from mentions in other nations’ histories – is that the Sunrise people were a people either before the spirits choce tribes, or before the spirits were known to people at all. The Sunrise People were one of three groups – the other two being the Moonlight People and the Earth People – known to speak the Before Words.
