ᴺQ. [ᴱQ.] candóla n. “crown of head” (Category: Forehead)
|ᴹQ. nóla¹||“round head, knoll, round hilltop; summit”|
A word appearing as ᴱQ. kandóla “crown of head” in a list of body-parts from the 1920s, an elaboration of ᴱQ. nóla which likewise could mean “crown of head” (PE14/117), but elsewhere generally meant “head” or “hill” (QL/67). The initial element of candóla is probably from ᴱ√KASA “head”.
Neo-Quenya: As the basic elements continued to appear in later versions of Quenya, I would retain this word as ᴺQ. candóla “crown of head” for purposes of Neo-Quenya, with kas-ndōlā > candóla, because sn > zn > nn after which the long cluster nnd reduced to nd.
