dinso
experimental gismu x1 is a dinosaur [very general: any ancient quasi-reptilian vertebrate] of type x2 living in era x3. A gismu version of dinsauru; contrast with reksa. The use of this word is not strictly only relevant to members of clade Dinosauria, although it does include them (and, specifically, birds); its referent might include pterosaurs, icthyosaurs, plesiosaurs, mosasaurs, dimetrodons, avemetatarsaliads, and perhaps even synapsids (in other words, any ancient quasi-reptilian vertebrate). As such, it is a qualitative word that bears no particular or strong attention or respect to genealogy or academic classification of these animals. Basically, any ancient animal the name of which ends in "-saur" can be so-described. Proposed short rafsi: -dis-. See also: rexsa, ketslau, ikfiio, disrmuzo, plesiio.
