Shouldn't there be something on the Vori's interesting vocabulary?

Here's my short list based on the first 10 minutes of the show:

  • Nullify=kill
  • Glimpse=look, eye
  • Sphere=planet
  • Walk
  • Power=God, god
  • Wayafter=afterlife
  • Soonafter=
  • Nemesis=enemy
  • Trunks
  • Clash=fighting

After figuring it to be overwhelming, I searched and found this list--it's pretty extensive. Any word on how it developed and why the writers chose to use this? Assuming they don't speak Standard/English/whatever it's called in those days, the Universal Translator would be translating for Chakotay--why wouldn't it just translate the words in their language into the more normal words we use?

As per the article, see: Vori language. That page indicates the Vori use metaphors, which seems similar to the Tamarian language (although much less confusing to the uninitiated), which the universal translator had trouble with. - Intricated talk page 12:33, 27 February 2007 (UTC)
