What else -- a conlang I tried to write when I was in my teens. It sucked, but hey, this was one of the words that I liked and stuck with me. x3;
Liatai is the feminine form of the noun "liata," plural "liatae," roughly meaning "one who creates," more specifically meaning "one who makes something new from pieces of the old." For example, a carpenter could be a liata if he makes a chair, but if a different guy puts a decorative carving on it, the carver's not a liata as it applies to the chair. Together they could be the chair's liatae, but that depends on local use of the word. x3;
It was more often used in the context of artists, writers, and musicians. Someone who copies a work of art, repeats someone else's story, or sings someone else's song is still important, and there would be another word for them meaning something like "performer" or "one who displays the work of others," but they wouldn't be liatae. A woman who writes songs would be a liatai. Same for a woman who paints original works, tattoos her own designs, or comes up with new stories.
I've been writing, drawing, and coming up with worlds for as long as I can remember, so... when it came time to pick an internet handle, my mind went back to Liatai. ^^;
