Button, in my words + buttons

cnob : button

The Illunse word for button is cnob. Cnob is a very rare last name. CNOB is the NASDAQ stock symbol for ConnectOne Bancorp Inc.

This word is a mixture of the Old English word for button, cnæpp (top, summit, fibula, button) (which I transliterate to cnaepp), and the Neo-Latin word for button, boto.

This is a new word.

cnobas : buttons

The Illunse word for buttons (nominative plural) is cnobas. Similar Caobas is the name of places in Cuba and Mexico.

Buttons in Latin is botonis. Buttons in Old English is cnæppas.
