The root here was xatrem’het, which means ship, boat or anything which floats in water and helps human transportation. Xatrem’tan refers to “navigation, shipping, use of ships and/or boats”. The adjective xatrem means nautical or related to ships.

I am not sure when I created it but I do remember that I translated the text about the grandfather and the nonexistant dragon using it. I also know that the word was expanded for the preparation for one of the inverse relays where Rejistanian however was not chosen. During the preparation I created the rule that using a medium of transport as a verb it means to use this for transportation.

Example: Today, I decided to translate a larger text, well, post an existing translation and speak it.

When my great-great-grandfather was a young man, he travelled out into the world. First he went west; there was only sand there. Then he went north; there was only snow there. Then he went east; there the mountains were too high and great-great-grandfather couldn’t climb them. At last he decided to travel south, on foot, on horseback, by cart and by boat. In the south he saw the largest city in all the world.
