Lead, in my words

ledum : lead

The Illunse word for lead (metal) is ledum.

This word is a mixture of the Old English word for lead, which is lead (same as Modern English), and the Latin word for lead, which is plumbum.

Lead is a soft, malleable, heavy metal. Its atomic symbol is Pb, from the Latin plumbum. Lead is one of the seven metals known from antiquity.

I've changed this word. My Illunse word for lead is now plud.
