language of spells

Ever wondered what "Vas Sanct Grav" or "Wis Quas Lor" meant? Each syllable has a special meaning. Join 2 or more syllables together and you get the ancient arcane words which are needed to cast a spell. The following is a list of the known syllables that make up the language of spells. (P.S. I pinched this list from Ultima VII - The Black Gate. It was written by Lord British and is used in most medieval RPGs).

There, I hope that answers all your "arcane words" questions. Now to test it out ... What does
" Vas      An      Corp     Kal     Tym     Mani " mean?
"Great  Negate  Death  Invoke  Time     Life " or in other words "Resurrect" :P
Now, i realised there are some syllables which are not listed here. They are YARL, NU and WAIA. Did Vryce just put them there for fun, or do they have their own meanings as well? If you know what they mean, or if you noticed I missed out more, e-mail me and let me know. Thanx alot!
