ᴺS. [G.] ^nigol n. “mouse, (lit.) small one” (Category: Mouse, Rodent)

ᴺS. [G.] ^nigol, n. “mouse, (lit.) small one” (Category: Mouse, Rodent)
See G. nig(la) for discussion.

Element In


G. nig(la) n. “mouse” (Category: Mouse, Rodent)

The words G. nig and nigla “a mouse” appeared in the Gnomish Lexicon of the 1910s above the verbs G. nigla- “thieve” and G. nig- “steal” (GL/60), probably derived from a variant of the early root ᴱ√NAQA “steal” (QL/64).

Neo-Sindarin: I would adapt this word into Neo-Sindarin as ᴺS. nigol “mouse”, reconceived of as elaboration of √NIK “small”.
