Cloud, in my words + clouds

cloudsnulce : cloud

The Illunse word for cloud is nulce. Nulce is an unusual last name.

This word is a mixture of the Latin word for cloud which is nubes (a cloud, mist, vapor), and the Old English word for cloud which is wolcen (a cloud; ball, lump; sky, heavens).

This is the current word for cloud.

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

nulcan : clouds

The Illunse word for clouds (nominative plural) is nulcan. Nulcan is a rare last name.

Clouds in Latin is nubis. Clouds in Old English is wolcen (same as singular).

I didn't have a word for clouds, the plural, before.

Sorry about my lack of recent updates. I took an unplanned absence from this blog.
