#lexember  Day 4. I'm a little late today for day 4, so I went with something simple: the word for salt in both languages

Sinnish: xuhral /xə.ˈɾal/ - mass noun - earth word class - salt, as a material, a pile of salt. A grain of salt would be 'gube opo xuhral' or pebble of salt

Rhetorical Alchemy: tokup /ˈto.kʊp/ - noun - salt, in the chemical sense. Common salt (the kind we eat) is specifically tuhkupheh /tə.ˈkʊp.hɛ/ which translates as 'eating salt' (the suffix -ya is applied to the root tokup, and the resulting word is crystallized to make it a noun).
