Empty, in my words

vactig : empty

The Illunse word for empty is vactig.

This word is a mixture of the Old English word æmtig (empty, vacant, barren; unoccupied, without employment, free, idle), and the Latin word vacuus (empty, vacant, unoccupied; devoid of, free of).

I seem to be doing a lot of unpleasant adjectives this month. Sweet was nice; but sharp, bitter, sour and empty?
