G. tusc adj. “inflammable; touchy, irritable; explosive” (Category: to Light, Kindle)

An adjective in the Gnomish Lexicon of the 1910s glossed “inflammable — touchy, irritable — explosive” derived from primitive early root ᴱ√tudh- (GL/72), where ð became s before stops like k in Gnomish. Since there are no signs of this Gnomish sound change in later Noldorin or Sindarin, this word was likely abandoned.
