There's a word above a door (apart from tiwah or repahts) in DIRT demo:

Not really new though: it's on Huevo19.
Has it been already studied?

I think I’ve seen it before; the letters are hard to separate, but it seems to be a variant of the “rePahts” (“the City”) sign above a door at the bottom of (MO:ULa’s) Descent.

Thanks for the answer. :D
I still have a doubt though, since we already find "rePaths" twice in the demo, above doors toward the city
(and "tiwah" once, toward the shaft).
But this is an other direction, near the surface, toward a tunnel with a digging machine.
And the letters are quite different imo.
Not easy to unravel, its true. :?

I’ve asked in Cyan Chat, and indeed a more likely decomposition is “retahleeo” (“the surface”).

That fits!
That's the meaning (considering the context).
The T is probably a TH here though:
R E TH
AH L EE O

The DLF already studied it because it was on Huevo19, extracted from the demo.
Behind the door.
Many thanks.

edit:
with maybe a t ahead: tret(h)ahleeo,
for "at the surface" :?:
