ᴺS. [G.] ^anwathren adj. “manly, masculine” (Category: Male)

ᴺS. [G.] ^anwathren, adj. “manly, masculine” (Category: Male)
See G. anothrin for discussion.


^anwas “manhood, *manliness, masculinity”

G. anothrin adj. “adult (of men), fullgrown; manly” (Category: Male)

A word appearing as G. anothrin “adult (of men), fullgrown; manly” in the Gnomish Lexicon of the 1910s, an adjectival form of G. anoth “manhood†; man (fullgrown)” (GL/19).

Neo-Sindarin: I would adapt this word into Neo-Sindarin as ᴺS. anwathren “manly, masculine” as adjectival form of ᴺS. anwas “manhood”, both based on later N. anw “male (person or animal)” (Ety/ƷAN).
