Comment #1: Etymology
Curtis W Franks (Wed Jun 4 05:37:24 2014)

I chose to eliminate vowels and endings in the English, Spanish, Arabic,
and Russian words so as to capture the essence of the word and in order to
produce a higher-scoring result.

The alternatives that scored equally well with this input were flefe,
filce, fifce, flese, and filje. I selected those options among these
which could produce fairly nice (heretofore unassigned) short rafsi and
randomly selected one gismu candidate from among those that were not
thereby eliminated.
