Gates, in my words

perata : gates

The Illunse word for gates (nominative plural) is perata. Perata is a last name. In Finnish perata means to gut (a fish). In Indonesian perata means grading, leveller.

Gates in Latin is portae. Gates in Old English is gatu.

Gate (singular) in Illunse is perat, which is a mix of the Latin word (porta) and Old English word (geat).

Here's a link to Gate, in J.R.R. Tolkien's words, which includes words for gates.
