zethepa, n. Forest, wilderness.

usage: Originally a contraction of the cumbersome zelthelepelía, or 'true garden,' this term was used specifically to refer to wild congregations of Terran trees envisioned in dreams. It does not refer to forests of zelekhabra trees, which would be described as zelekhabríai.

etymology: zel- + thelepelíu
attestation: As early as 5-10 lilpo.
