Did the first word begin with a vowel?

Does the first word’s meaning have anything to do with glow or glory or halo?

Does the phrase’s meaning have anything to do with will’o’the’wisp?

Does the first word have to do with illusion or delusion?
Edit: some kind of post-ninja thing happened here.

Sorry, I meant that "will-o'-the-wisp" is the meaning of the entire phrase.

I really didn’t expect to get it.

I hope I’m not responsible for asking the next one!
I don’t know enough to come up with a good one.

Good guess!

Since you got it, you do have the option of providing the word/phrase for the next round, but if you'd prefer, you also have the option of passing the turn to someone else.

Nice phrase! [:D] What's the etymology of the first word?

Due to exams I've been away for a bit, but now they are finished! [:D]

So:

Boral

/ɪn aˈlɛjʁ̩ veˈxojʁn̩ ɪl/
[in‿ɐˈlɛjɐvɪˈxojɐˌnɪw] (Damvað dialect)
Eresse anga paris cur neduc, a san teonga.

Is allagr related to either French allègre or English allergy?
