That Cadhinor morpheme, bu-, does it indeed come from Chinese (where bu means NOT)
Another nice borrowing is Frälina - German Fraulein. It really jumped out.
Btw.: why don't you use Unicode in your pages? All modern browsers can read it.
Yes, bu- is from Chinese. (I used Chinese more in some of the other Almean languages.)
As for Unicode, it's coming, but I think it isn't yet time. Not everyone has a 'modern' browser, and if they do they may not have a Unicode font. Me, for instance: my iMac doesn't have any font that supplies the hacheks needed for Verdurian. And I don't want to make people download fonts just to see my pages.
