Q. emmë², n. “mummy, mother (familiar/family)”

This word appears only in the form emmë in later writings, but that conflicts with emmë¹ “we, us” and is not compatible with the better attested amil(lë) “mother” (though the latter may have also changed to emil(lë)). The older form ᴹQ. amme might be preferable.
