2) Haqax Edit

The meaning of haqax, prior to the rise of Modern Taran, meant 'to be afraid of,' as in, 'X is afraid of Y.' By the time of the Late Middle Sovereignty Period, haqax meant 'X scares Y.' Therefore, Qahlahaqaxta from MidT and Qavhlahaqaxti from ModT have different agents doing the scaring, and different antibenefactives becoming scared.
