ᴱQ. hont (honty-) n. “sneeze” (Category: to Sneeze)

A noun appearing as ᴱQ. hont (honty-) “sneeze” in the Qenya Lexicon of the 1910s derived from the early root ᴱ√HOTYO of the same meaning (QL/50).

Neo-Quenya: I’d retain this word as ᴺQ. hont “sneeze” for purposes of Neo-Quenya, based on a Neo-Root ᴺ√HOT, but without the more elaborate stem form. Note that -nt remained a valid (but rare) final consonant cluster in Tolkien’s later conception of Quenya.
