...Sort of. Prådnurētē translates literally as "rock-[currencies]", or more loosely as "money stone". The root word in this case is nurē, which is the name of the basic D'ni monetary unit -- their version of dollar, pound, euro, yen, etcetera. So for a person living in the US, the word would translate as "rock-dollars". I have absolutely no idea what one looks like, so I can't select an image to represent one. However, it has been described as being the D'ni version of a smart card, and that's an illustration I can do.

And rov is the word for person.

In the word we have for the society the D'ni descended from, Ronā, the '-vtē' is dropped from rovtē. They called themselves the people-root, but I speculate that it is contracted it down to Ronā from Rovtēnā. I base this guess on other contractions of pronouns such as the name of the Age of Gahreesen, and the informal names for various D'ni guilds.

It has been proposed that ro could be a root word for people as a society since it also appears in Baro, which means "beast-people". However, since RAWA said that rovtē was the word for people, it's just as much a guess as mine.
