The Peopling of the World (a syncretized Araèlikì creation myth).

This is an outline of the pre-Yazilìic Araèlikì tale of the origin of the various peoples they were aware of in the distant past. After their conversion to the Suùšite faith, they equated their old deities with the deities of the new Yazilìc pantheon.

The god Asnaèr (identified with Išurù) had two sons by Danaèr (the queen of Fidìe): Alùserì (which means “insight”) and Elenlaèrì ( which means “memory”).

Alùserì had a son, Nìkerìul, by the goddess Laèkì (identified with Zùsusru).

Elenaèrì had a daughter, Fèrše, by the goddess Dèršì (identified with Irhilùru).

Nìkerìul and Fèrše had the following six children:

A. A daughter, Suduralàì, who had three sons by the god Fel (identified with Išusù):
