Never interrupt an erring foe.

---

This was fun - coined the verb Tratàx 'interrupt/bother/knock out of sequence' from the existing verb Trattàk 'bump into/nudge someone (with one's shoulder)', itself from TRAT2 trata 'shoulder'. That then spawned the further derivations Tratḳama 'pester (repeatedly)' and Tratràıá 'irritate (by virtue of one's very presence)', as well as the noun TRAT3 taràt 'minor interruption/pause'.
Edit: Second interpretation didn't actually work syntactically, so it's been removed - still with the first.

Never interrupt your foe when they are making a mistake.

New words for this challenge:
Spoiler:
hrēweme [ˈhreːweme] - to interrupt
Etymology: From Indo-European *hrewp- "to break, tear up"; The part -rupt in the English word interrupt ultimately comes from the same root.

slēme [ˈsleːme] - to cause a mishap, to make a mistake
Etymology: from Indo-European *slewb- "to slip"
