- Oz (name for the entire land)
Creation and Usage Notes
|Soooooo...evidently, I came up with a word for Oz that was separate from 'ozu...? K... I'm going to guess maybe it came from time immemorial—that that was the idea? I'm honestly not sure anymore.

|You know what? It may have been a post hoc borrowing. That is, the word derived ultimately from a word that came to mean "world" in Munja'kin—a word that also came to have meaning in Inha—and then it was simply borrowed back into Munja'kin. That would make this a borrowing, I guess, but from what? And then, of course, there's the troubling role of English in Oz... Eh. It's fine.
