ᴱN. madren adj. “edible” (Category: to Eat)
An adjective appearing as ᴱN. madren “edible” in Early Noldorin Word-lists of the 1920s based on the verb ᴱN. mad- “eat” (PE13/163, 165). It seems this was a pure adjective, as opposed to indeclinable ᴱN. medid “edible” which was based on the inflected verb form medi- (PE13/163, 165). In the Gnomish Lexicon of the 1910s the adjective was instead G. madrin “edible, fit for food, wholesome” with variant form madriol (GL/56).
