Three, in my words

threeteir : three

The Fennas word for three is teir. Teir is a last name. In Breton teir is the feminine form of three, tri is the masculine form. In Faroese teir means they.

How did I come up with this word? The Welsh word for three is tri/tair; the Breton word for three is tri/teir; and the Irish word for three is trí.

My previous Fennas word for three was teil.
