I thought ahas means narrow (or when there's not enough room/space) = kitsas
(ahenema = kitsenema, kitsamaks muutuma)

Haljas is an interesting word. While for flora it means green (or fresh or young or lush), then for example when used for metals it means shiny, clear, clean (not covered with oxydation, dirt nor paint) and when used for liquids it means clear (perfectly transparent).
