That reminds me, there's a suffix "-n" in the Lindiga vocabulary that's
defined "to be __". Originally I think this was for converting adjectives
to verbs (as in "to be red", "to be short", etc.) but I guess it could just
as well be used for nouns (especially since I'm using adjectives as verbs
now without any derivational suffixes being necessary). Something like
"lÚlindenu kichrsa".
