EECHIUS (person): a child who had given Tarl rence cake when he was taken as a slave in the rence marshes, was later punished by his mother for doing so, later found dead after the raid on the rence islands. it was because of the kindness of the child that He took over the barges and killed so many. He was the son of Ho-Hak. "Then, turning over the slashed side of some broken matting, that had been part of the side of a rence hut, I found another body, that of a child. I knelt beside it, and wept. Telima was standing behind me. "He is the last one," she said. I said nothing. "His name," she said, "was EECHIUS." Pg. 66, Raiders of Gor.

EEL (animal/food): a snake like fish which lives around the port cities, caught for their meat which is ribboned and grilled.

Pg. 98, Captive of Gor.

What place is this? Where am I?" Pg. 48, Nomads of Gor.

ENA {person}The girl who had been coaching El-in-or in the collaring ceremony of Treve."ENA, the high girl, who wore the garment of white, had not been much pleased that I did not have a caste, and could not claim a familiar city as my place of origin." Pg. 269, Captive of Gor.

ENERGY BULB (noun): light bulb, invented by the Builders. "And then came the third and final stroke of that distant gong and at the same instant the ENERGY BULBs in the room dimmed and I understood that now, somewhere in the long corridors of that vast edifice there walked the Priest-Kings of Gor." Pg. 50, Priest-Kings of Gor.

ENERGY LAMP (noun): similar to lamps on earth, but rare on Gor. "...then we would be walking deeper within the cylinder, down broad, carpeted, tapestried halls, set with ENERGY LAMPS, seldom found in the homes of private citizens, emitting a soft glowing light..." Pg. 392, Assassin of Gor.

EN'KARA (date): the first month of the Gorean calendar, that of the vernal equinox, which is the Gorean new year; roughly equivalent to the Earth calendar month of March. "It was now the month of the vernal equinox on Gor, called EN'KARA, or the First Kara." Pg. 179, Outlaw of Gor.

EN'KARA-LAR-TORVIS(date): see EN'KARA. "The full expression is En'Kara-Lar-Torvis, which means, rather literally, The First Turning of the Central Fire." Pg. 179, Outlaw of Gor.

EN'VAR (date): the fourth month of the Gorean calendar, that of the summer solstice, roughly equivalent with the Earth calendar month of June.

EN'VAR-LAR-TORVIS (date): See EN'VAR. "As might be expected there are related expressions for the months of the solstices, EN'VAR-LAR-TORVIS and Se'Var-Lar-Torvis, or, again rather literally, The First Resting and the Second Resting of the Central Fire." Pg. 178, Outlaw of Gor.

ETA (noun): a letter of the Gorean alphabet; corresponds to the Earth letter 'E' (?); apparently adapted from the Greek alphabet; sometimes used as a name for slavegirls. "'In Gorean,'said Bosk, 'the most frequently occurring letter is ETA. We might then begin by supposing that the combination of blue and red signifies an ETA.'" Pg. 383, Slave Girl of Gor.

ETEOCLES (person): an Ubar of Port Kar, sat on the Council of Captains. "Above it, nominally, stood five Ubars, each refusing to recognize the authority of the others, Chung, ETEOCLES, Nigel, Sullius Maximus, and Henrius Sevarius, claiming to be the fifth of his line." Pg. 126, Raiders of Gor.

EXAMINATION POSITION (position): used when a slave is to be examined. ""Have that one stand, to be examined," said a man. "Cotina, stand, examination position!" snapped Targo. Cotina stood, her legs widely spread, her head back, her hands clasped behind the back of her neck. It is hard for a woman to move from this position and she must be concerned with her balance. The subtle adjustments and tenseness required to maintain her balance keep her even more helplessly in place, and these adjustments and this tenseness will also be expressed in her posture, providing body-language cues bespeaking obedience and servitude. Too, obviously this posture bares her vulnerably, and her hands cannot interfere with the examination. The position of the arms, the hands clasped behind the back of the neck, or, sometimes, behind the back of the head, lifts the bosom, exhibiting it beautifully." Pg. 247, Prize of Gor

EXOTIC SLAVES (people): unusual variety of slaves, rare in Gor. "I myself had never cared much for EXOTICS, any more than I cared much for some of the species of dogs and goldfish which some breeders of Earth regarded as such triumphs. EXOTICS are normally bred for some deformity which is thought to be appealing. On the other hand, sometimes the matter is much more subtle and sinister. For example it is possible to breed a girl whos saliva will be poisonous; such a woman, placed in the Pleasure Gardens of an enemy, can be more dangerous than the knife of an Assassin." Pg. 115, Assassin of Gor.

EXPOSITION CAGES (noun): a place where a slave to be sold, is kept so possible Buyers may look them over. "...soon, however, I was passing by the EXPOSITION CAGES, which are accessible to the public; these cages were now empty; they are used, from the tenth to the fourteenth Ahn of a given day, to display the goods that will be sold that evening; access to the EXPOSITION CAGE area i free to the public prior to the sale, but, after the fourteenth Ahn, the Curulean is cleared and made ready for the evenings work..." Pg. 287, Assassin of Gor.
