Cloth, in my words + cloths

plath : cloth

The Illunse word for cloth is plath. Plath is a uncommon last name, notably poet Sylvia Plath. Plath is a rare first name. Plath is the name of a place in Germany.

This word is a mixture of the Old English word for cloth which is cláþ (cloth; clothes, covering, sail) (which I transliterate to clath), and the Latin word for cloth which is pannus (cloth, garment; rag).

This is a new word. This is a noun, a cloth.

plathas : cloths

The Illunse word for cloths is plathas. Plathas is a very rare last name.

Cloths in Latin is panni. Cloths in Old English is cláþas (which I transliterate to clathas).

The Illunse language is cool. I've added to my blogroll at my Amerysk blog.

(Amerysk is a conlang from Anglo-Saxon and other Germanic roots.)
