Meadow, in my word + meadows

prade : meadow

The Illunse word for meadow (pasture) is prade. Prade is a last name. Prade is the name of small cities in France and Italy. In Sardinian prade means abbot. Similar La Prade is city in the Aquitaine region of France.

This word is a mixture the Latin word pratum (meadow, meadowland; meadow grass/crop), and the Old English word mæd (mead, meadow, pasture), which I transliterate to maed.

I've changed this word. My Illunse word for meadow is now preda.

pradi : meadows

The Illunse word for meadows (pastures) is pradi. Pradi is an uncommon last name.

Meadows in Latin is prati. Meadows in Old English is mæd (same as the singular).

I've changed this word. My Illunse word for meadows is now predu.

There doesn't appear to be any Quenya or Sindarin words for meadow.
