Stream, in my words (revised) + streams

forest streamrirn : stream

The Illunse word for stream (or creek) is rirn. In Yiddish (transliterated) rirn means to move.

This word is a mixture of the Latin word for stream rivus, and the Old English (and Scottish) word for stream burn (stream, brook).

My previous word for stream or creek was runis.

Here's a link to Creek, in J.R.R. Tolkien's words.

rirna : streams

The Illunse word for streams (nominative plural) is rirna. Rirna is a rare last name.

Streams in Latin is rivi. Streams in Old English is burna.

Streams is a new word. I didn't have this plural.
