Just realized something amazing that has led the perfect phono-semantic matching. Ởnh·Vú has the word 陪 (bõy), a French borrowing meaning servant, and the word 㺏 (cão), which is the native word for buffalo. Because of this I think it's obvious that the Ởnh·Vú word for cowboy has to be 㺏陪 (cão·bõy) or "buffalo servant" [xD] .

[:D] Now I'm curious.

"servant who is a buffalo"? "servant to buffalo"? "servant having to do with buffalo"? "Buffalo buffalo Buffalo buffalo buffalo buffalo Buffalo buffalo"?

And also, what French word is 陪 (bõy) borrowed from?

Well I definitely had the "servant to buffalo" meaning in mind but the direct meaning is definitely vague enough that those other two interpretations very well could be possible [:P]

From "boy" which itself is a direct borrowing from English

Verbs Meaning "Wear"
Ởnh·Vú has 5 different verbs that can be translated as "wear". What verb is used depends on what kind of item is worn

芒 (Bà)
In addition to being the main Ởnh·Vú word for "to carry", it's also the main verb for "to wear" and is used for anything that wouldn't fall into the categories below. In general, it refers to items worn below the waist or over the full body
Items that are used with this verb: pants, underwear, shorts, shoes, socks, dresses, skirts, suits, uniforms, swimwear

粧面 (Chanh·Mèn)
This word is the Ởnh·Vú noun for "makeup" but is also used as a verb to mean "to wear makeup".
Items that are used with this verb: makeup, lipstick, rouge, eyeliner

紩 (Chap)
This verb's main meaning is "to tie/fasten" and is used for a few items that relate back to this meaning.
Items that are used with this verb: belts, neckties, scarves, necklaces, watches

㧅 (Đư)
This verb has the main meaning of "to carry on the head" and as a result means "to wear" when talking about items that can be worn on the head.
Items that are used with this verb: hats, hoods, glasses, contacts, turbins, hijabs, earrings

𦠰 (Gãom)
This verb's main meaning is "to carry on the shoulders" and by extension can be used for a variety of items that are supported on the shoulders.
Items that are used with this verb: shirts, t-shirts, aprons, bags, purses, shoulder pads, bras, bikini tops, waistcoats, jackets, overcoats
Cool! Five different words!

Kankonian has lots of words for "to wear":

envwetz: covers tops, pants, skirts, dresses, robes, coats, overcoats, overalls, coveralls
enbad: covers hats, turbans
engum: covers shoes, socks
enlikak: covers necklaces, ties, ascots

"Military spiral" is a pretty cool term, and in general your naming scheme for instruments is really cool and interesting.

Ởnh·Vú is one of my favorite CBB-langs!

How would you say "recorder"? "Cymbal"?

Ởnh·Vú is one of my favorite CBB-langs!

How would you say "recorder"? "Cymbal"?
I'm so glad to hear that! [:D] Just added those two terms

Ởnh·Vú vs. Indonesian & Tagalog
I just recently got through watching Langfocus' new video comparing Indonesian and Tagalog and I was really surprised how many cognates with Ởnh·Vú I could still easily recognize. I've included all of the ones mentioned in the video below. Some of them really highlight just how extensive the sound changes really are!
I
:idn: aku
:phl: ako
:con: 倅 (cư)

We (exclusive)
:idn: kami
:phl: kami
:con: 𠵴 (cứy)

We (inclusive)
:idn: kita
:phl: kita
:con: 𠵴些 (cứy·ta)

Child
:idn: anak
:phl: anak
:con: 𡥵 (ãc)

Rock/Stone
:idn: batu
:phl: bato
:con: 𥒥穌 (ba·to)

Wind
:idn: angin
:phl: hangin
:con: 𩙌 (ainh)

Sky
:idn: langit
:phl: langit/kelangit
:con: 𡗶 (lait)
Although 𡗶 is the cognate term for sky, it's mostly used in poetic or archaic texts with the exception of some compounds and expressions including 𡗶罖牢? (lait nãnh hàt?) "how's the weather?". The main term for sky in modern Ởnh·Vú is the Sinic word 天 (tén).

Fire
:idn: api
:phl: apoy
:con: 焒 (ử)

Pig
:idn: babi
:phl: baboy
:con: 𤞼 (bũy)

Crocodile
:idn: buaya
:phl: buwaya
:con: 䱸 (bứy)

Moon/Month
:idn: bulan
:phl: buwan
:con: 𦝄 (vãn); 𣎃 (van)
𦝄 means moon while 𣎃 means month. These terms were originally the same word but have become distinguished by tone.

Year
:idn: tahun
:phl: taon
:con: 𢆥 (tún)
𢆥 is the cognate term for year but only appears in certain compounds such as 𢆥𣞄 (tún·gũ) "the end of the year". The main term for year in modern Ởnh·Vú is the Sinic word 年 (nen).

Four, Five, Six
:idn: empat, lima, enam
:phl: apat, lima, anim
:con: 𦊚 (pãt), 𠄼 (léy), 𦒹 (nam)

Thousand
:idn: ribu
:phl: libo
:con: 𠦳扜 (ri·ꞗo)
𠦳扜 is used exclusively for the number one thousand. For numbers starting with one thousand one, the Sinic term 千 (tén) is used.

Eye
:idn: mata
:phl: mata
:con: 眜 (mã)

Hope
:idn: asa
:phl: asa
:con: 妸𨖨 (ã·sã)
妸𨖨 is only used as a noun. For the verbal sense of hope (and some occasional use as a noun) the Sinic term 希望 (hi·mưnh) is used.

Drink
:idn: minum
:phl: inom
:con: 㳹 (mín)

Open
:idn: buka
:phl: buka
:con: 𢲫 (poc)
𢲫 is only used to mean "to be open". For the active verbal sense, the Sinic term 開 (cứy) is used.

-人體 (Nin·téy) is very similar to 身體 but means specifically "the human body"
-肉體 (Nuc·téy) is typically translated as either "the physical body" or "the flesh" and has a very physical (sometimes erotic) feeling to it

固𢚸𠌨 (A buit pá)- To wonder about (to have heart towards)
𢚸曰 (Buit·chí)- To think up/make up/think of (to heart-write)
𢚸形 (Buit·henh)- Heart shape
