N. tinc n. “metal” (Category: Metal)

N. tinc, n. “metal” (Category: Metal)
G. ger “ore, metal”
S. #raud² “metal”
N. rhaud “metal”
G. tinc “a flicker, a gleam”

A word for “metal” in The Etymologies of the 1930s under the root ᴹ√TINKŌ of the same meaning (Ety/TINKŌ).

Conceptual Development: A possible precursor is G. sinc “metal” from the Gnomish Lexicon (GL/67), a cognate of ᴱQ. sink “mineral, gem, metal” under the early root ᴱ√SINI “pale blue” in the contemporaneous Qenya Lexicon (QL/83). For purposes of Neo-Sindarin, I prefer to use ᴺS. sinc for “*mineral”.
