Day, in my words (revised) + days

dae : day

The Illunse word for day is dae. Dae is a last name. Dae means days in Afikaans. Dae means shadow in Sindarin.

This word is a mixture of the Old English word for day which is dæg (which I transliterate to daeg) and the Latin word for day which is dies.

My previous Illunse word for day was daes, which I think works better as the nominative case plural. I will retroactively change the word for noon, too.

Here's a link to my ealier post, Day, in J.R.R. Tolkien's words.

daes : days

The Illunse word for days (nominative plural) is daes. Daes is a last name. Daes means does in Scots Gaelic.

Days in Latin is diei. Days in Old English is dagas.
