ᴱQ. nolpa n. “mole” (Category: Animals (other))

A noun appearing ᴱQ. nolpa and noldare “mole” in the Gnomish Lexicon of the 1910s (GL/30). In the Qenya Lexicon proper, only noldare appeared under the early root ᴱ√NDOLO “delve” (QL/65), though it was initially grouped with ᴱQ. Noldo under the root ᴱ√ŊOLO (GL/67). The form nᵈoldare “mole” also appeared in the Poetic and Mythological Words of Eldarissa (PME/65.)

Neo-Quenya: For purposes of Neo-Quenya I would retain the word ᴺQ. nolpa “mole”, reconceived of as a derivative of the root ᴹ√NDOL “*hill, head”, describing these creatures as hill-makers.
