Ilk. ulion n. “monster, deformed and hideous creature”

A noun meaning “monster, deformed and hideous creature” derived from primitive ᴹ✶ulgundō (Ety/ÚLUG). Here the final [un] became [on] after other vowels and consonants were lost. This is also the only attested example of how [g] became [i] between an [l] and a vowel, as noted by Helge Fauskanger (AL-Ilkorin/ulion).
