S. [N.] ^anu, n. and adj. “male (person or animal)”

In HSD/anu, Didier Willis suggested (as originally proposed by David Salo) that this word is most likely an adjective, the cognate of adjective Q. hanwa¹ “male” rather than the noun Q. hanu “a male (man or animal)”. This is because the final -u in ✶ʒanu would have vanished in Sindarin, while the final -wa in ✶ʒanwa would have developed into -u (Noldorin -w).
