First, in my words

pryst : first

The Illunse word for first is pryst. Pryst is an unusual last name. In Bulgarian (transliterated) pryst means finger.

This word is a mixture of the Old English word for first fyrst (first; foremost, principal, chief), and the Latin word for first primus (first, foremost / best, chief, principal; nearest / next).

Note there is an another Old English word for first, forma (the first, earliest).
