25. Verb morphology
I've established a wide lexical field around thunderstorms in Ov. This is one very developed part of the lexicon because thunderstorms were considered to be the mightiest natural phenomenon and constitute the foundation of Chalyl's local beliefs to this day. Sadly, all of this vocabulary is slowly becoming obsolete in the modern world, although the distinctions are still understood by the younger generations nowadays, except for a few words like « śträł » or « zwongean » which, if understood, are considered literary.
(0) indicates null derivation, meaning that the verb is the same as the noun. Although colloquially, that may be true of any word.
