Storm, in my words (revised) + storms

screll : storm

The Illunse word for storm is screll. Screll is a rare last name. Screll is a rare first name. Screll is new slang for a combination of a scream and a yell.

This word is a mixture of the Old English word for storm which is storm (storm, tempest, disturbance) (same as Modern English), and the Latin word for storm which is procella (storm, tempest, gale).

My previous word for storm was stoll. I'm changing this word because of its similarity to the word stola, the traditional garment of Roman women. Probably the most noted image of a stola is the garment shown on the Statue of Liberty.

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

scrella : storms

The Illunse word for storms (nominative plural) is scrella. Scrella is a rare last name.

Storms in Latin is procellae. Storms in Old English is stormas.

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

I'm trying to make posts at least every two weeks.
