S. [Ilk.] ?mêd(h), adj. “wet”

Element In


Ilk. mêd adj. “wet”

A Doriathrin adjective for “wet” derived from primitive ᴹ✶mizdā (Ety/MIZD). First the short [i] became [e] preceding the final [a], then the [e] lengthened due to the vocalization of [z] before voiced stops. It is unclear, though, whether the vowel lengthened directly (as suggested by Helge Fauskanger, AL-Doriathrin/méd), or whether it first became the diphthong [ei] after which [ei] became [ē] (the theory of this lexicon).
