Ilk. ungol n. “darkness”

Ilk. ungol n. “darkness”

A noun for “darkness” developed from the root ᴹ√UÑG (Ety/UÑG), perhaps from a primitive form *✶uñglē̆ [uŋglē̆] as suggested by Helge Fauskanger (AL-Ilkorin/ungol): after the primitive final [e] was lost, the resulting final [l] would become syllabic and develop into [-ol].
