S. *gwain¹, adj. “young, *new”

This word, the cognate of Q. vinya¹, is attested only in the form gwein (PE17/191). As elements of the canonical names Iarwain “Old-young” and Narwain “January, *New-fire”, it clearly should be gwain. Perhaps the form gwein uses the older, Noldorin phonology, as N. gweith >> S. gwaith and N. teith >> S. taith.
