Sabbath day at the blue synagogue

The stem for the word for blue is blo, from a Scandanavian language I believe. It looks too obvious to me. I had been toying with the idea that the stem should be bol. Not a foolish idea as one rule I use is that words that end in -o in parent languages become the neuter-gender words ending in -on in Shente. Blue in Shente would be bol, bola, bolon in masculine, feminine and neuter forms.

I recognised a couple of culture words for the Shente. They have a building in their communities called a shagoga, it's a place for the teaching and practice of ritual doctrines. It comes from Greek word synagoge, probably from Teach Yourself New Testament Greek.

From the same source is evidence that they observe a sabbath day as they have the word sambaton. So they appear to keep some form of ritual law-code.
