Ice, in my words (revised) + ices

glise : ice

The Illunse word for ice is glise. Glise is a last name. In Norwegian glise means grin. In Old English similar word glisian mean to shine, glisten.

This word is a mixture of the Latin word for ice which is glacies (like the word glacier), and the Old English word for ice which is ís.
My previous Illunse word for ice was gise. A small change, I added the L.

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

glisan : ices

The Illunse word for ices (nominative plural) is glisan. Glisan is a last name.

Ices in Latin is glaciei. Ices in Old English is ís (same as the singular).

It's nice thinking of ice on a hot summer day.
