From Old TBD drêêh
"to rot, to decay", from Proto-TBD *da
"bad, evil, dangerous" + *rees
"to leave, to depart, to disappear, to die".
The noun may be treated as animate in order to emphasize the spread of the rot or mold in question, but this is rare.
The interjection and Senses 6-7 of the adjective are likely to be considered only mildly vulgar by the majority of speakers, although this may vary by age group and region.

First I gotta say, it really cool that you're juggling both Thedish and Gan Vei.
Thank you! I knew I wanted to try to do two entries, one a priori and one a posteriori, every day, since I have plenty of ideas for both kinds. My plan was to switch between different a priori and a posteriori languages throughout the month, but so far it's just been easiest to stick with the two I started with.
And likewise, of course, since you're working with 3 conlangs + Sardinian!

Second, I was reading this and realized that I had completely forgotten about classifiers in the Hlai-like A Priori, and the Hlai-lang A Posteriori. It's cool that you're really making this language work together. It feels authentic, and "real".
I was actually debating whether or not to have them in this language at all for a bit, since I don't want it to draw inspiration too heavily or exclusively from East/Southeast Asian natlangs, but I do quite like numeral classifiers, so here we are.
And thank you, that's very nice of you to say! I must admit I'm not quite satisfied with how it's turning out aesthetically, but I'm going to stick with it for a little while longer before making any major adjustments.
