zinc is ninel (revisited)

ninel = zinc (Lhaesine pronunciation = NIH-nehl) (noun) (metal) (some things Google found for "ninel": a common term; Ninel Conde is a Mexican actress and singer; a feminine Russian first name which is a backward spelling of Lenin, the Communist revolutionary leader; a last name, notably musician Emma Ninel; user names)

My previous Lhaesine word for "zinc" was "nines". Even though my conlang word was pronounced differently than "nines" in English, I decided to modify this word. Somehow "nines" didn't seem quite fitting.

Zinc is the fourth most common metal in use today.

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 This posting is no longer current.
