Ilk. thavon n. “carpenter, wright, builder” (Category: Carpenter)
A noun meaning “carpenter, wright, builder” derived from primitive ᴹ✶stabnō (Ety/STAB). The initial [s] spirantalized the following [t] to [θ] (“th”), while the [b] spirantalized to [v] after a vowel, and [n] became syllabic, developing into [-on] after it became final. These developments were all suggested by Helge Fauskanger (AL-Ilkorin/thavon).
