ᴺS. [G.] amosgarn n. “robin, (lit.) red-breast” (Category: Bird (other))

ᴺS. [G.] amosgarn, n. “robin, (lit.) red-breast” (Category: Bird (other))
See G. amosgarn for discussion.

Elements

ammos “*breast, chest; ⚠️breastplate”
S. caran “red”

G. amosgarn n. “robin” (Category: Bird (other))

The word G. amosgarn “robin” appeared in Gnomish Lexicon Slips modifying the Gnomish Lexicon of the 1910s (PE13/110), a combination of G. ammos “breast(plate)” and G. carn(in) “scarlet” and equivalent to ᴱQ. karneambar “robin, (lit.) red-breast” (QL/48).

Conceptual Development: Several similar forms appeared in the Gnomish Lexicon proper: G. {ambogrintha, amrintha >>} ammogrint “red breast” (GL/19) and G. {crinthambos >>} crinthammos “red breast, robin” (GL/27), but these words used G. crintha “rosy, pink” rather than G. carn(in) “scarlet”.

Neo-Sindarin: For purposes of Neo-Sindarin, I would adapt this word as ᴺS. amosgarn “robin, (lit.) red-breast” as a combination of ᴺS. ammos “breast” and a modified form of S. caran “red”.
