Q. #linda- v. “*to sing, make music” (Category: Music)

Q. #linda-, v. “*to sing, make music” (Category: Music)
This verb is attested as linduvanye [last letter obscure, but likely e as suggested Carl Hostetter]. It appeared in etymological notes published in the front piece of the 1975 edition of Les Aventures de Tom Bombadil as the cognate to S. linnathon, which was elsewhere translated “I will sing”. Helge Fauskanger suggested it may also have the sense “make music” (QQ/lindalë) and was likely the basis for the word lindalë “music”.
