Feather, in my words + feathers

fepler : feather

The Illunse word for feather is fepler. Fepler is a rare last name.

This word is a mixture of the Old English word for feather which is feðer (feather; pl wings; pen) (which I transliterate to fether), and the Latin words for feather which are pluma (feather, esp. smaller and softer feathers; plume) and penna (feather, esp. larger or harder feathers; wing).

This is a new word.

feplera : feathers

The Illunse word for feathers is feplera.

Feathers in Latin is plumae and pennae. Feathers in Old English is feðra (which I transliterate to fethra).
