Chain, in my words + chains

canete : chain

The Illunse word for chain is canete. Canete and Cañete are unusual last names. Similar Cañete is the name of a town in Spain, a city in Chile, and a province in Peru.

This word is a mixture of the Old English word for chain, racente (chain, fetter), and the Latin word for chain, catena.

This is a new word.

canetan : chains

The Illunse word for chains (nominative plural) is canetan. Canetan is a very rare last name.

Chains in Latin is catenae. Chains in Old English is racentan.
