And, in my words

ed : and

The Illunse word for and (conjunction) is ed. Ed is a masculine first name, short for Edward, Edgar, Edwin or Edmund. Ed is a last name. In Danish, Norwegian and Swedish ed means oath. In Italian ed means and (used before a vowel instead of e). Ed is the name of cities in Germany, Sweden and Austria. In English ed can be short for edition, editor or education.

This word is a mixture of the Old English word for and which is and (same as Modern English), and the Latin word for and which is et (and, and even; also, even).

Making a small, but very common, word.
