Etymology 1[edit]

Apparently a borrowing from Latvian elle. Ultimately from Middle Dutch or Middle Low German. See etymology at Latvian elle.

Noun[edit]

  1. hell
    Ta palāb tulsõ – He is burning up (lit. "burns [as if] in hell's flame") / He is burning in hell (depending on context)
Declension[edit]
Usage notes[edit]

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.

Etymology 2[edit]

See eļļõ.

  2. 2nd person singular negative form of eļļõ
