Notes (OOC)

The “specializations” of draz are weird, as Suvile derivations go. First, dral should probably be *dralz, with the -l- infix that appears in so many words. Second, dradz shows a change from fricative to affricate that occurs very rarely in the language. The most likely explanation is that it was influenced by dotth, “long”, since a bench is indeed longer than a chair.
