Just an observation that's struck me over the last few weeks-- in deriving new vocab. items for Kash, in the vast majority of cases I come up with compounds or derivations of existing words. It takes definite effort to choose a form from the list of possibles Is this because the dictionary is already quite large (+/- 5000 words, but fewer bases) and the language favors compounding/derivation, or am I just getting lazy? :-) Cases in point: "commerce" is a derivation of "to trade, swap"; "finance/financial" is derived from "money"; "engrave (on metal)" compounds "write+metal". Have others, whose dictionaries are also quite large, faced this same problem?
