Temples, in my words

tealga : temples

The Illunse word for temples (nominative plural) is tealga.

Temples in Latin is templi. Temples in Old English is hearga.

Temple (singular) in Illunse is tealg, which is a mix of the Latin word (templum) and Old English word (hearg).

If you were watching closely, you might have noticed that I posted a revised word for temple. Decent enough word, but it didn't look quite right for Illunse. I trashed that and went back to my earlier word.
