Six, in my words (again)

sise : six

The Illunse word for six is sise. Sise can be an English last name. Sise is the cast of six in throwing dice.

This word is a mixture of the Old English word for six which is siex, and the Latin word for six which is sex.

My previous Illunse word for six was sixe. Way too much like six for a fantasy language. So I decided to break the x into c and s, and only keep the s. Still this new word can mean six, but it's not as obvious.

I've changed this word. My Illunse word for six is now sesc.
