Thread, in my words + threads

thil : thread

The Illunse word for thread is thil. Thil is an unusual last name. Thil is a rare fisrt name. Thil is the name or part of the name of a handful of places in France. Thil is the name of places in India and Pakistan.

This word is a mixture of the Old English word for thread, þrǽd (which I transliterate to thraed), and the Latin word for thread, filum (thread, string, filament, fiber).

This is a new word.

thilas : threads

The Illunse word for threads (nominative plural) is thilas. Thilas is a very rare last name. Thilas was an ancient title of nobility used in kingdoms in what is modern-day Senegal.

Threads in Latin is fila. Threads in Old English is þrǽdas (which I transliterate to thraedas).
