Horse, in my words (revised) + horses

hrus : horse

The Illunse word for horse is hrus. Hrus is an unusual last name. In Mount&Blade PC game there's a Hrus castle.

This word is a mixture of the Old English word for horse which is hors and the Latin word for horse which is equus (which I transliterate to ecwuus).

My previous Illunse word for horse was orwes. I liked that word, but I decided to change it because I didn't like my options for the nominative plural.

hrusas : horses

The Illunse word for horses (nominative plural) is hrusas. Hrusas is a rare last name.

Horses in Latin is equi. Horses in Old English is hors (same as the singular).

Here's a link to Horse, in Tolkien's words.
