G. gund n. “boil, pus” (Category: to Wound; Wound; Wounded)

⚠️G. gund, n. “boil, pus” (Category: to Wound; Wound; Wounded)
ᴺS. !ordh “boil, pus”

A noun in the Gnomish Lexicon with variants G. gund, hunn and glosses “a boil, pus”, derived from the early root ᴱ√gudh having to do with heat and burning (GL/42).

Neo-Sindarin: Since it seems ᴱ√gudh >> √UR “heat, be hot”, I’d update this word to ᴺS. ordh “boil, pus” < *urdā = “(orig.) the product of burning”.
