N. camland n. “palm of hand” (Category: Hand (other))

⚠️N. camland, n. “palm of hand” (Category: Hand (other))
ᴺS. ^camlann “palm of hand”

A noun appearing as N. camland “palm of hand” in The Etymologies of the 1930s as a combination of N. cam “hand” and N. lhann “wide” (Ety/LAD). It is not clear why this word ends in nd rather than reducing to n(n) as is usual.

Conceptual Development: There were some similar words for “palm of the hand” in the Gnomish Lexicon of the 1910s: G. mablad or mablod plus G. mavlant, all with an initial element G. mab “hand[s]” and a second element like G. lad “a level, a flat” or G. blant “flat” (GL/23, 52, 55).

Neo-Sindarin: This word is often adapted as ᴺS. camlann for Neo-Sindarin, as suggested in Hiswelókë’s Sindarin Dictionary (HSD), in keeping with the trend of final nd becoming n(n) in polysyllable in both Noldorin and Sindarin.
