    I notice that you have ‘lumiere’ in the ere list which I see on etymonline is the name of a French colour photographer, Luminere. While luminaire as French for illuminations perhaps should be in the ‘aire’ list here?

      I am only including English words on this list, but I looked up ‘luminaire’ in the Macquarie dictionary, and it is a Thing in English: “a complete light fitting with one or more light bulbs, the socket and wiring, and any other parts to hold it in place”. So I’ve added it to the list, thank you for teaching me a new word.
