Air, in my words (revised) + airs

lyfa : air

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.
