day is uin (revisited)

uin = day (Lhaesine pronunciation = YOON) (noun) (some things Google found for "uin": a very common term; UIN stands for Unique Identification Number; UIN stands for Universal Internet Number; UIN stands for University ID Number; UIN is the airport code for Quincy, Illinois; UIN stands for Union Ideas Network in the UK; UIN stands for Universitas Islam Negeri (State Islamic University) in Indonesia; means "than" in Finnish; means "oven" in Scottish; means "from the" in Sindarin; a place in Ethiopia)

My previous Lhaesine word for "day" was "yune". This is a change in spelling but not in pronunciation. This word could have (and perhaps should have) been spelled "une", but I much prefer "uin". For three-letter words, I'm going to rethink my "silent final e" spelling rule.

This word has been revised. The Lhaesine word for "day" is now "iun". This posting is no longer current.
