The Illunse word for sand is sarn. In Sindarin sarn translates to small stone or pebble. In Welsh sarn tranlates to causeway or litter. Sarn is an unusual last name. Sarn is a rare masculine first name. Sarn is the name of cities in Switzerland and Wales. In Tolkien, Sarn Gebir are rapids on the River Anduin and Sarn Ford is a stone ford on the River Baranduin.
This word is a mixture of the Latin word for sand which is arena or harena (sand, grains of sand; sandy land or desert; seashore; arena), and the Old English word for sand which is sand (same as Modern English) (sand, gravel; sand by the sea; of deserts).
This is the current word for sand.
Here's a link to Sand, in J.R.R. Tolkien's words.
sarna : sands
The Illunse word for sands (nominative plural) is sarna. Sarna is an uncommon last name. Sarna is a rare feminine first name. Sarna means roe deer in Polish. Sarna means scabies in Spanish. Sarna is the name of places in India.
Sands in Latin is arenae or harenae. Sands in Old English is sand (same as the singular).
Sands, the plural, is new, and so is my graphic for sand.

The Illunse word for soil (earth) is hulm. Hulm is the name of a place in Germany. Hulm is an uncommon last name.
This word is a mixture of the Latin word for soil humus (ground, soil, earth, land, country), and the Old English word for soil molde (earth, soil; sand, mold, dust; world). I think that molde is the most appropriate Old English word for my definition.
Hulm is the Illunse word for the noun soil, for what you plant crops in.
My previous word for soil was hulme. This is a small change.
Here's a link to Earth, in J.R.R. Tolkien's words, which includes words for soil.
hulma : soils
The Illunse word for soils (nominative plural) is hulma. Hulma is a rare last name.
Soils in Latin is humi. Soils in Old English is moldan.
The plural, soils, is new.

The Illunse word for air is lyfa. Lyfa Danish Modern lamps. Lyfa is a very rare first name that can be feminine.
This word is a mixture of the Latin word for air which is aer (air (one of 4 elements); atmosphere, sky), and Old English word for air which is lyft (air, sky, clouds, atmosphere).
My previous word for air was lafe.
Here's a link to Air, in J.R.R. Tolkien's words.
lyfae : airs
The Illunse word for airs (nominative plural) is lyfae. Lyfae is a rare first name.
Airs in Latin is aeris. Airs in Old English is lyfta.
The plural, airs, is new.
By the way, I altered the previous word, earth, from erta to erte.

The Illunse word for earth is erte. Erte is an uncommon last name. Similar Erté was a Russian-born French artist and designer. Erte means steep in Italian. Erte is the name of a place in Chad.
This word is a mixture of the Latin word for earth terra (earth, land, ground; country) and the Old English word for earth which is eorðe (the earth, ground, soil; dry land; the Earth as a planet; land, country) (I transliterate the Old English letter eth (ð) to th -> eorthe).
Erte is the Illunse word for earth as land or ground, and as a classical, metaphysical element. Erte will not be the word for Earth as a planet, as Latin has another word, Tellus, for that.
My previous word for earth was erta. This is a small change.
Here's a link to Earth, in J.R.R. Tolkien's words.
ertan : earths
The Illunse word for earths (nominative plural) is ertan. Ertan is an uncommon masculine first name that can be Turkish. Ertan is an unusual last name. Ertan is the name of a place in China.
Earths in Latin is terrae. Earths in Old English is eorðan.
The plural, earths, is new. Setting the nominative case plural will help me with declension.
