khutyi : old

The Tarijan word for old is khutyi.

Khutyi may be an area in the Caucasus region. Similarly named Roces Khuti inline skates.

How I came up with this word:
Khutyi is a mixture of the transliterated word for old in Russian which is staryi (старый), and the transliterated word for old (things) in Mongolian which is khuuchin (хуучин).

In my other conlangs:
The Miresua word for old is harna.
The Lhaesine word for old is haran.

Yes, I know my Miresua and Lhaesine words are very similar. I might change the Lhaesine word someday.
