Q. árë (ári-), n. “sunlight, warmth (especially of the sun); day”

In the Etymologies, this word has the sense “day” < ᴹ√AR¹ “day”, and it appears with this gloss in some later writings as well. By the time he was writing The Lord of the Rings appendices, though, Tolkien had changed the sense of this word to “sunlight” < √AS¹ “warmth”. This derivation is clear from the archaic form †ázë, whose [-z-] must developed from primitive intervocalic ✶[-s-]. The sense “day” was transferred to the word aurë and its shorter form .
