Roads, in my words

weas : roads

The Illunse word for roads (nominative plural) is weas. Weas is a last name. In Old English wéas means by chance, accidentally. The Weas were a native tribe originally located in western Indiana.

Roads in Latin is viae. Roads in Old English is wegas.

Road (singular) in Illunse is wea, which is a mix of the Latin word (via) and Old English word (weg).

I think that's enough with plurals for existing words. I'll have to construct some new words. Hopefuly I'll also find some Quenya and Sindarin words.

I've changed this word. My Illunse word for roads is now weaga.
