of the North. This word is derived from the root –sÄ«r– which means “dry”.
Of our two characters in the story, one is the North Wind, mÅ«rÄna masÄ«rien and the other is the Sun malÅ. I covered the word for wind, usually inanimate, earlier, and the word for sun, always animate, shortly after that.
se mÅ«rÄna masÄ«rien; se malÅ;
The North Wind; the Sun.
