Shoulder, in my words + shoulders

huxel : shoulder

The Illunse word for shoulder is huxel. Huxel is an uncommon last name.

This word is a mixture of the Latin word for shoulder (and upper arm) which is humerus, and the Old English word for shoulder which is eaxel.

There's an X in this word! Not CS for X. Both Latin and Old English use the letter X, so I guess I will too.

huxela : shoulders

The Illunse word for shoulders (nominative plural) is huxela.

Shoulders in Latin is humeri. Shoulders in Old English is eaxela.
