G. cwim(ri) n. “body, flesh” (Category: Flesh)

⚠️G. cwim(ri), n. “body, flesh” (Category: Flesh)
S. rhond “body”
S. rhaw² “flesh, ⚠️body”

A noun in the Gnomish Lexicon of the 1910s appearing as cwim² “body, flesh” underneath G. cwim¹ “awake, alert, alive”, with both apparently being derived from the early root ᴱ√QIV (GL/28); if so the sense “body” probably represent some amount of semantic drift, since the corresponding Qenya forms primarily had the sense “awake” (GL/29). The form cwim² had a variant cwimbri in which the b was deleted, though the editors said it was also possibly that cwimbri >> cwimru.
