Gate, in my words + gates

gateperat : gate

The Illunse word for gate is perat. Perat is a last name. Perat is the name of a town in Albania. There is Chateau Mont-Perat Bordeaux wine. Perat translates to rancid in Indonesian.

This word is a mixture of the Latin word for gate which is porta (gate, entrance; city gates), and the Old English word for gate which is geat.

This is the current word for gate. I'm repeating this word because it has been a while since my last post. It also allows me to shows this picture of a gate.

perata : gates

The Illunse word for gates (nominative plural) is perata. Perata is a last name. In Finnish perata means to gut (a fish). In Indonesian perata means grading, leveller.

Gates in Latin is portae. Gates in Old English is gatu.

This is the current word for gates.

Here's a link to Gate, in J.R.R. Tolkien's words, which includes words for gates.
