Cup, in my words + cups

cupoc : cup

The Illunse word for cup is cupoc.

This word is a mixture of the Old English word for cup which is cuppe (cup, a small drinking vessel) and the Latin word for cup which is poculum (drinking cup, bowl, drinking vessel; drink / draught).

This is the current word for cup.

Here's a link to Cup, in J.R.R. Tolkien's words.

cupocan : cups

The Illunse word for cups (nominative plural) is cupocan.

Cups in Latin is pocula. Cups in Old English is cuppan.
