I think that "grake" can be used for all masses and maybe also stresses,
energies, or momenta in the right contexts. But definitely masses.

Aside from a potential mention of/terbri frame of reference, I do not see
any need for different base words for rest and Relativistic masses.

Idk about "tilju". I take it to really mean "heavy", as in "having a lot
of mass/inertia". It is neither "weight" nor "mass" themselves. Much like
"clani" means "long" but not "displacement" (a d kinda not "length").

So can you please change the definition if you believe the new terbri is
better?

I'm not sure what to do with E=mc^2 equivalence.


We are still lacking other properties of physical bodies, right? Ideally
there should be a page listing them all.
