G. clum(mi) n. “mushroom” (Category: Vegetation (other))

⚠️G. clum(mi), n. “mushroom” (Category: Vegetation (other))
ᴺS. !telum “mushroom”

A noun appearing as {clumbi >>} G. clummi or clum “mushroom” in the Gnomish Lexicon of the 1910s (GL/26), cognate to ᴱQ. telumbe “mushroom” under the root ᴱ√TELE “cover in” in the contemporaneous Qenya Lexicon (QL/90). It is an example of the sound change whereby tl became cl in Gnomish.

Neo-Sindarin: This sound change occurred in Noldorin of the 1930s but not Sindarin of the 1950s and 60s; compare N. eglenn to S. edlen(n) “exiled” (Ety/LED; PE17/51). To avoid these questions, I would adapt this Gnomish word as ᴺS. telum “mushroom” for purposes of Neo-Sindarin.
