ᴺQ. !finëa, adj. “downy, hairy [specifically fine, light hair]” (Category: Hair (other))

A neologism for “downy, hairy” (more specifically referring fine, light hair) coined by Paul Strack in 2018 for Eldamo as a replacement for ᴱQ. tilinya of the same meaning. This Early Qenya word was based on ᴱQ. til (tiln-) “single hair”, and finëa is likewise an adjectival form of finë “single hair”.


Q. finë “(single) hair, filament”
