Eye, in my words (revised) + eyes

ocge : eye

The Illunse word for eye is ocge. Ocge is a rare last name. OCGE is an acronym for Ortho Cresyl Glycidyl Ether.

This word is a mixture of the Latin word for eye which is oculus, and the Old English word for eye which is éage.

In Old English cg is a valid consonant combination. Although I'm not sure if I'll pronounce it the same.

My previous Illunse word for eye was eocl.

Here's a link to Eye, in J.R.R. Tolkien's words.

ocgi : eyes

The Illunse word for eyes (nominative plural) is ocgi.

Eyes in Latin is oculi. Eyes in Old English is éagan. Eyes in Quenya is hendi.
