donok : east

The Tarijan word for east is donok.

Donok is an unusual last name. DONOK keyring and shoehorn from Japan.

International locations:
Donok is a city in Russia. Lebong Donok Mine, Sumatra Island, Indonesia.

How I came up with this word:
Donok is a mixture of the transliterated word for east in Russian which is vostok (восток), and the transliterated word for east in Mongolian which is doron (дорно).

There is another Mongolian word for east, züün (зүүн).

In my other conlangs:
The Miresua word for east is iketä.
The Lhaesine word for east is seidon.
