Water, in my words (revised) + waters

awer : water

The Illunse word for water is awer. Awer is an uncommon last name. Awer is a rare masculine first name. Awer means but in Low German. Awer is the name of places in Indonesia and Uganda.

This word is a mixture of the Latin word for water which is aqua, and the Old English word for water which is wæter.
My previous Illunse word for water was acwe. That was an interesting word, but perhaps too complicated.

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

awera : waters

The Illunse word for waters (nominative plural) is awera. Awera Island Surf Camp in the Mentawai Islands of Indonesia. Awera is a rare language of the island of New Guinea. Awera is the name of places in Pakistan..

Waters in Latin is aquae. Waters in Old English is wæter (same as the singular).

The plural, waters, is new.
