Words, Insults, and Concepts of Thialrer

Words and Insults


Perecienae: a derogatory term which literally means "foreigner" in Thialren, it is derived from Latin "peregrino", meaning "foreigner", and Scots Gaelic "cin", also meaning "foreigner"; plural is perecienae. It refers to someone not from Thialrer who does not abide by proper etiquette and protocol, and, while it can refer to anyone, it has caught on to refer to people from Royalist Deyest after the distaste shown for protocol before the Castellan Emperor at his coronation.

Stulimaq: another derogatory term, meaning "idiot" in Thialren; it is derived from Latin "stultus" and Kazakh "aqımaq", both mean "idiot"; plural is stulimaqlar. It is used to refer to those ignorant or disdainful of almost anything, but most prominently Thialren history and Thialren government. It has been used to refer to those from Khazar Lechia due to their disdain for democracy.

Bidgetic: yet another derogatory term, which literally means "heretic" in Thialren. It is derived from Kazakh "bdğatşı", meaning heretic, and the Scots Gaelic word heretic, which is also shared by English; the plural is bidgeticlar. It refers primarily to pagans, those who blaspheme the Holy Spirit, and those who criticize others' religions. It is also sometimes used by Thalristani Muslims to refer to those who depict Muhammad or convert from Islam. It is sometimes used to refer to the inhabitants of Blessed Hyrkania, which is officially recognized by Thialrer by the name of "The Bidgetic City of Asratu", and is only recognized as controlling the city of Asratu. After their conversion to the Enochite religion, the government officially recognized their sovereignty over their land, and referred to them as The Glorious People's Utopia of Blessed Hyrkania.

Satanicuslar: plural of satanicus, refers to satanists. It is the gravest insult in all of Thialrer, and is one of only two used in an official or legal sense. If one is proven to be a satanicus, they are forced to convert to any other religion. It is not used to refer to people of any other nation, as this would be too grave to imagine, and would constitute grounds for a holy war intended to destroy everything in that nation if proven.

Praesizgis: a term used to refer to highly respected politicians and royals; being called a praesizgis is a great compliment to the person in question. It is derived from the Latin praeminister, meaning minister, and the Kazakh sızğış, meaning ruler; the plural form is praesizgislar. The King of Mantesa, as well as Khan Bulan and Khatun Qirka Bulan of Khazar Lechia, and the Prime Minister of Thialrer and House of Knight, are a few praesizgislar.

Mhodhail: literally means misbehaved; mhodhail refers to any foreigner who does not behave properly. It is similar to a perecen or the Khazar Lechian word boorcham, but only applies to one who is not from a nation and disrespects native etiquette, but does not have to apply to one not using Thialren etiquette; it could refer to a Thialren who does not abide by Khazar Lechian etiquette while in Khazar Lechia, for example. Ho Lani of Dorsla was once considered a mhodhail for not abiding by Khazar etiquette when campaigning for General Secretary. Mhodhail is derived from Scots Gaelic m-mhodhail, meaning misbehaved. The plural form is mhodhaillar.

Satitor: literally means traitor; satitor is derived from Latin proditor, meaning traitor, and Kazakh satqın, also meaning traitor. It is one of only two insults used in an official or legal sense. The plural is satitorae. A satitor is one who betrays their friends, family, nation, state, or alliance; it is a grave insult and used in official proceedings to refer to a traitor to Thialrer.

Madentewis: literally means culture appropriator; madentewis is derived from Kazakh mdenet, meaning culture, and Kazakh menşiktewiş, meaning appropriator. The plural is madentewislar. A madentewis is a foreigner who uses Thialren, Thalren, Thalrenian, Anzellottian, Romaiian, or Thalristani cultural practices not of their culture. Acting like a madentewis will get you hated by the Thialren public.

Regxiya Castellus: literally means "Castellan Monarchy", the concept of the hereditary, divinely appointed throne which guides and watches over the nation. It is etymologically derived from Latin regnum, meaning monarchy, and Kazakh monarxya, also meaning monarchy.

Sogadh: war. Like some other Thialren words for war, sogadh is meant to refer to a terrible war with many lives lost. It is derived from Kazakh soğıs, meaning war, and Scots Gaelic cogadh, also meaning war. The plural is sogadhi.
