eļ m (invariable)
- Latvian letter names:
- Ta palāb eļ tulsõ – He is burning up (lit. "burns [as if] in hell's flame") / He is burning in hell (depending on context)
This word in one instance is indicated as meaning "oil" (in the compound "almond oil") and with a different inflectional type (with "grade shift" – lengthening of the stem consonant different from inflection of the "hell" sense as shown above.) However, eļļõ of the "sieldõ" type seems to be a much more prevalent word to refer to oil.
