Mud, in my words + muds
The Illunse word for mud is fut. Fut is a rare last name and a rare first name. In French fut means was. In Hungarian fut means to run, to race. In Romanian fut has a vulgar meaning, but never mind that.
This word is a mixture of the Old English word for mud which is fenn (mud mire, dirt), and the Latin word for mud which is lutum (mud, clay, dirt).
This is a new word.
futan : muds
The Illunse word for muds is futan. In Japanese (transliterated) futan means a burden, responsibility. Futan is the name of places in China.
Muds in Latin is luta. Muds in Old English is fenn (same as the singular).
Sorry for the lack of recent updates. Things have been busy around here.
