Fourteen, in my words (revised)

ceafordice : fourteen

The Illunse word for fourteen is ceafordice. Ceafordice is an unique word.

This word is a mixture of the Latin word for fourteen which is quattuordecim, and the Old English word for fourteen which is féowertíene.

I have a 10-letter word for fourteen. That's rather lengthy. But it's shorter than the Latin and the Old English words.

Four, in my words (revised)

ceafor : four

The Illunse word for four is ceafor. Ceafor is a unusual British masculine first name. In Old English ceafor means beetle, cockchafer.

This word is a mixture of the Old English word for four féower and the Latin word for four quattuor. The c comes from transliterating the Latin q to cw.

My previous Illunse word for four was ceuwor. I think my new word, ceafor, is easier to pronounce.

Here's a link to my post for Four, in J.R.R. Tolkien's words.

Fifteen, in my words (revised)

fuindice : fifteen

The Illunse word for fifteen is fuindice.

This word is a mixture of the Latin word for fifteen which is quindecim, and the Old English word for fifteen which is fíftíene.

This is a small change, due to the change of my word for five.

Five, in my words (revised)

fuin : five

The Illunse word for five is fuin. Fuin is an uncommon last name. In Irish and Scottish Gaelic fuin means to knead. In Sindarin fuin means night, darkness. Fuin is the name of a city in East Timor.

This word is a mixture of the Old English word for five fíf and the Latin word for five quinque.

I found out that UI is a valid vowel combination in Latin.

My previous Illunse word for five was finec.

weodice : twelve

The Illunse word for twelve is weodice.

This word is a mixture of the Latin word for twelve which is duodecim, and the Old English word for twelve which is twelf.

I had to change twelve because I changed two. Looks like I'll be doing more number revisions.

Sixteen, in my words (revised)

sescdice : sixteen

The Illunse word for sixteen is sescdice.

This word is a mixture of the Latin word for sixteen which is sedecim, and the Old English word for sixteen which is siextíene.

Hopefully this is the start of me posting more often again.

Six, in my words (again)

sesc : six

The Illunse word for six is sesc. Sesc is an acronym for Southeast Education Service Center of Price, Utah.

This word is a mixture of the Old English word for six which is siex and the Latin word for six which is sex.

My previous Illunse word for six was sise. In that word, and in this new one, I transliterate the letter X into C and S.

Sorry for the lack of updates. I've been busy. But now I got my desktop computer back from repairs, finally.
