ᴹQ. kumbe n. “mound, heap” (Category: Mound, Pile)
A noun in The Etymologies of the 1930s glossed “mound, heap” derived from the root ᴹ√KUB (Ety/KUB). It is a later iteration of ᴱQ. kúme or kumbe “a pile, heap, load, burden” from the Qenya Lexicon of the 1910s where it was a derivative of ᴱ√KUMU “heap up” (QL/49). Its Noldorin cognate N. cum appeared in the name N. Cûm-na-Dengin “Mound of Slain” in Silmarillion drafts from the 1930s (SM/312, LR/147), but later this name became S. Haudh-en-Ndengin.
