detsembõr

LivonianEdit

EtymologyEdit

Apparently ultimately from Latin. See etymology at English December.

PronunciationEdit

NounEdit

detsembõr

  1. December
    bet Oskar Loorits kēratõb, ku sīe īž āigast detsembõrs līvõ kīeldõ nēļas skūols opīz 108 lapstā – but Oskar Loorits wrote that this same year in December Livonian was learned in four schools by 108 children

DeclensionEdit

Usage notesEdit

Perhaps by error December is one of two months (besides November) that LEL doesn't list. As can be observed on sites such as livones.net, its name is detsembõr, following the same pattern as septembõr, etc. Declension type of the latter (237) is given in this entry.
