ᴺQ. !findori n. “barley” (Category: Barley)

ᴺQ. !findori, n. “barley” [created by Helge Fauskanger, NQNT] (Category: Barley)

A neologism for “barley” coined by Helge Fauskanger for his Neo-Quenya New Testament (NQNT), perhaps combination of findë “hair” and [ᴱQ.] ore (ori-) “grain”. In NQNT, this appeared only in the possessive form findoriva “of barley”, indicating a stem for of findori-. I prefer ᴺQ. ori as the Neo-Quenya adaptation of ᴱQ. ore “grain”, so I would assume the uninflected form of this noun was findori.


Q. findë “hair (especially of the head), tress or plait of hair”
^ori “grain, ⚠️seed”
