Word: a way to distinguish between "bricks" and other kinds of "blocks"



The only word we currently have for both is "ngogh". It would be very helpful to have more vocabulary available, for example in the Minecraft translation project, since there are many "blocks", some of which are made of "bricks", which gets cumbersome very fast.

Comment below with feedback and suggestions.


  1. I’m not really a gamer but to describe all the available Minecraft blocks it looks like you’d need words for “andesite”, “compost”, “diorite”, “fern”, “hay”, “hypha”, “kelp”, “lapis lazuli”, “mycelium”, “piston”, and “terracotta”. All fine suggestions! 🙂

  2. Minecraft blocks are like Lego blocks in some way, and we know that {‘ay’} can be used for construction sets. Another possibility could be {buq’Ir} “cube”.
