Er-lhiam dy vel oo kiart dy vriaght mychione bun jeh'n ennym sy Vaarle.

Myr shen, cre mychione 'Tranlaase' ny 'Clowan'?

I think you're right to ask about the basic meaning of the name in
English. There's not much sense in it, if you look for the basis of it.
In this thread up to now, we were looking on it as a creature of the
sort that's not in Mann.

So, what about 'Tranlaase' (to badger or harass) or 'Clowan' (to harass
for money)?

Shoh slaynt,
