Silk, in my words (revised) + silks

seorc : silk

The Illunse word for silk is seorc. Seorc is a rare last name.

This word is a mixture of the Old English word for silk which is seolc (silk, silken cloth), and the Latin word for silk which is sericum (silk; Chinese goods).

My previous word for silk was seor. This is a small change.

Here's a link to Silk, in J.R.R. Tolkien's words + silken.

seorcas : silks

The Illunse word for silks is seorcas.

Silks in Latin is serica. Silks in Old English is seolcas.
