Tell ya what, when I create my own website for CAV (meaning, my own personal units and not anything official) I'll put up a "Learning conversational Rach" section based around how I learned Irish all those years ago.

Tchinn - Fire
Tchinngach - Firing, to set on fire
Ong Tchinn - Fire claw, Claw of Fire, Firey Claw
Tchinn Ong - Fire that claws, rending fire
Etc. etc.

Slan,

Thanks Matt, but now you need to make up a word for Fire. That's what I really needed. Thanks for the dictionary though. I'll be real helpful!

Frank, how are you gonna do that without any verbs or adverbs?

Medron, Rach don't need cease fire. When everyone is dead, they just stop shooting.

lol! Yeah, I gotta agree with FF on that one. Afterall, this is a race that uses the same word for both 'peace' and 'weak'!

Even completely outnumbered, I don't see a Rach giving up or retreating.

We've researched the surname back to Joseph Wesley Ragan from N. Carolina in 1806, email me and we'll chat to see if we're related.
