Swadesh list and word generators

SO, for the longest time now, I've been meaning to translate the words in the Swadesh list into Sandic. The list itself has many useful words, and as it's my intention to have Sandic be wholly usable for any situation (even if only by myself), it's the perfect challenge.

..Well, that and the Conlang Test Sentences.

Today, I got to work on the Swadesh list, and as a result I now have 20-odd new words. I'm only about a third of the way through now, too!

A sampling of the new words, about which I am understandably very much excited:
- tooth
- tongue
- lie (ripozi)
- vomit
- spit
- rope
- tie
- sew
- shoot

I'm looking forward to finishing the list, and then working the test sentences. Wish me luck!
