Q. hinyë n. “baby” (Category: Infant)

⚠️Q. hinyë, n. “baby” (Category: Infant)
Q. vinimo “baby, little-one”

A word for a “baby” in rough notes on Elvish finger names (VT47/27), probably some kind of diminutive formation from √KHIN “child”. It had a variant hintil that is clearly specific to fingers only: = √KHIN + √TIL “*baby finger, (lit.) child tip”.

Neo-Quenya: For purposes of Neo-Quenya, it is probably better to use one of the baby words from the more finished versions of these notes, such as vinimo.
