N. nenn adj. “watery” (Category: Water)

⚠️N. nenn, adj. “watery” (Category: Water)
ᴺS. ^nend “watery”

An adjective given as N. nenn “watery” in The Etymologies of the 1930s, derived from primitive ᴹ✶nendā (Ety/NEN).

Neo-Sindarin: In keeping with the idea that the sound “remained nd at the end of fully accented monosyllables” in Sindarin (LotR/1115), I would represent this word as ᴺS. nend in Neo-Sindarin.
