Bone, in my words + bones

onsa : bone

The Illunse word for bone is onsa. Onsa is a rare last name. In the Japanese tokusatsu superhero television series Kamen Rider Hibiki the Henshin Onsa is an item like a tuning fork used for transformation. Onsa watches. Onsa is the name of cities in Nigeria and Sudan. Onsa-ri is a place in North Korea.

This word is a mixture of the Latin word for a bone which is os, and the Old English word for bone which is bán.
