Service Announcement on Registrations

From the Engine Room: due to the large number of malware/spam bots attempting to register on the site every day (which has now come to the attention of the website provider, too) I have temporarily suspended access to the registration webform. Registration is still possible, but only I can do it, so if you'd like to become a member of Aglardh please send me an email.


Thank you and apologies for any inconvenience caused. I will be looking into addressing the issue via a security module in the future.

Q. (apa)ruivë n. “wild fire, fire as conflagration”

A word appearing as ruive “wild fire — fire as conflagration” in etymological notes from around 1964 (DD), along with a longer variant aparuive (PE17/183). The short form ruive is derived from the root √RUYU “blaze (red)”, but it is not clear what the apa- prefix means in the longer form.
