Since we are on this topic, I am curious of the use of Salve in this context. Salve is a greeeting or parting message of something akin to Hello or Goodbye. It can be used for both. It also means, with that word ending (not sure what tense), "Save," -- hence the old song "Salve Regina", which means Save the Queen, or commonly translated as "God Save the Queen" even though there is no word for God (Deus) in there.
Do you know the stem of the word with the meaning of making clear or dissolving?
