jūrāna and anūra



the wind. This is the default word for wind considered as a singular entity. The collective anūrāni can be used for wind as a series of gusts, but more often the collective anūri is used instead. (The –ān– in the root –ūrān– is a singular marker.)



the air, the atmosphere. This word can also refer to any movement in the air. Thus anūri can be used to refer to wind, or to blowing air, or the rushing by of air.

ñamma anūri nā ā mūrāna masīrien
The North Wind made much moving-air.

Wind is in the animate singular here rather than the usual inanimate singular as above because the North Wind is a character in the story.
