Ear, in my words +ears

aure : ear

The Illunse word for ear is aure. Aure is a last name. In Interlingua aure means ear. In Quenya aure means daylight. In Norwegian aure means trout. Aure is the name of a cities in India, Pakistan, Papua New Guinea and Norway. Aure is the name of a town in Minnesota. Vielle-Aure is the name of a town in the Midi-Pyrenees region of France.

This word is a mixture of the Latin word for ear which is auris, and the Old English word for ear which is éare.

auran : ears

The Illunse word for ears (nominative plural) is auran. Auran is a last name. Auran is the name of a city in Norway.

Ears in Latin is auris. Ears in Old English is éaran.

That aure is ear in Interlingua, which is an international auxiliary language, might indicate that I picked a good, reasonable word for ear.

I've changed this word. My Illunse word for ear is now eure, the word for ears is eura.
