ᴺQ. !nisquë n. “incense, *(lit.) sweet smoke” (Category: Smoke)

ᴺQ. !nisquë, n. “incense, *(lit.) sweet smoke” [created by Helge Fauskanger, NQNT] (Category: Smoke)

A neologism for “incense” from Helge Fauskanger’s Neo-Quenya New Testament (NQNT), which seems to be a combination of nis- “sweet” + usquë “*smoke”. In VinQuettaParma Wiki (VQP), Tamas Ferencz instead coined ᴺQ. ussa based on the early root ᴱ√USU² “*burn” from the Qenya Lexicon of the 1910s, but the actual form of this root was likely *ᴱ√ƷUÐU (e.g. its Gnomish form was gudh-) rendering ᴺQ. ussa “incense” dubious.


Q. #nis- “*to smell sweetly”
