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).

joonistama to draw, sketch, describe: this is used for artistic drawing, such as portraits, artistic representations, etc.
joonestama to draw, draft, plot: this is used for technical drawing, such as those that involve the use of tools like rulers, protractors, etc.
For example, an elementary school math book has the instructions Joonesta sirgjoon läbi kolme punkti where students are asked to draw a straight line through three dots using a ruler, but Joonista samasuguseks where students are asked to draw (freehand) a decorative pattern that they copy from an example. It wasn't until I saw these two sets of instructions side-by-side like that that I realized these are actually two different verbs. :oops:

sirgjoon straight line (in general)
sirglõik line segment; finite straight line (geometry)

mall protractor
sirkel compass (tool for drawing circles and arcs)

purssima to speak [a language] poorly; to butcher [a language]
pursib inglise keelt he speaks broken English
