nelc : black
The Illunse word for the color black is nelc. Nelc is a rare last name. At UCLA, NELC is an acronym for the department of Near Eastern Languages & Cultures.
This word is a mixture of the Latin word for black (black, dark-colored, blackening) which is niger, and the Old English word for black (black, dark; ink) which is blæc (blaec) which is close to the Modern English word black.
My previous Illunse word for black was naec.
Here's a link to Black, in Tolkien's words.
I've changed this word. My Illunse word for black is now nabel.
