You’re thinking too hard. Just think of what the words are together.

I can't imagine it's just "here", is it?

Is there a commonly-used English equivalent/translation?
Since this game has been down for the last two months, I think I'll just make give shimobaatar the win here. To start, it doesn't really have a one word translation, since the word functions as both as a determiner and as an adverb. That being said, it can be translated as English's archaic distal locatives, yon and yonder. Àcogliuac contrasts with acxa 'there' and quistou 'that', meaning it can't precisely be defined without using the archaic words.

Given that over four months have passed, would anyone mind if I posted the next word?

Oh wow, I'm so sorry. I must have been so busy offline at the time that I never saw this. Please, go right ahead.

Sorry for how this round ended up going, qwed117. I wish there had been more people guessing towards the end, since for whatever reason, I wasn't even close to landing on "yon(der)" by myself. Thanks for deciding to put me out of my misery eventually by revealing the answer, but again, I apologize for not seeing this until now.

I like the look and sound of this!

Is the phrase an adjective + a noun?

Is centrala related to the English words "center/centre" and "central"?

can “centrala” be understood as a location (eg. “shopping center”, “commercial center) as compared to a concept (eg. “center of mass”, “center of charge”)?

is -açônel equivalent to English “-ational”?

was there a consonant in Latin between the predecessors to the sequence uê?

[tick] although its meaning is more specific than just "a central place"
