elytÃ¤Â (noun): forest, wood.
“doom awaits in the forests up the valley”
Etymologically, elytÃ¤ is not a native Carbian word, but is most probably derived from Pelenic *hÃ¨liÃ©d ‘barrier’. The ‘original’ Trurian word for ‘forest’ reflects as Ã¶nÃ©b in the modern language, but now means ‘tree’ due to semantic drift. Unsurprisingly, the words for (generic) ‘tree’ and ‘forest’ vary considerably among Trurian regional variants and dialects: for instance, elytÃ¤ is the standard and generally Upper Trurian word for ‘forest’, but the words wocha and lyth are preferred in Hinter Trurian and Lower Trurian dialects, respectively.
