Leather, in my words + leathers
The Illunse word for leather is coreth. Coreth is a rare last name. Mark Coreth is a British artist. Coreth is a rare first name.
This word is a mixture of the Old English word for leather leþer (which I transliterate to lether) (hide, skin, leather; although it's found only in compound words) or the adjective leathern which is leðren; and the Latin word for leather which is corium (skin / leather / hide).
This is a new word.
corethi : leathers
The Illunse word for leathers is corethi. Corethi is a rare first name.
Leathers in Latin is coria. Leathers in Old English is leþer (which I transliterate to lether) (same as the singular).
