Iron, in my words

iserr : iron

The Illunse word for iron is iserr. IsErr is a Microsoft Excel function. Iserr is an unusual last name.

This word is inspired by the Old English word for iron which is isern, and the Latin word for iron which is ferrum.

I've changed this word. My Illunse word for iron is now ifer.
