ᴺQ. [ᴱQ.] ^eldafindë n. “maidenhair fern, (lit.) elf tress” (Category: Vegetation (other))

ᴺQ. [ᴱQ.] ^eldafindë, n. “maidenhair fern, (lit.) elf tress” (Category: Vegetation (other))
See ᴱQ. eldasilqe for discussion.


Q. Elda “Elf, (lit.) one of the Star-folk”
Q. findë “hair (especially of the head), tress or plait of hair”

ᴱQ. eldasilqe n. “maidenhair fern, (lit.) elf tress” (Category: Vegetation (other))

A word appearing as ᴱQ. eldasilqe “maidenhair fern, (sea) elf’s tress” in the Qenya Lexicon and Poetic and Mythological Words of Eldarissa, a combination of ᴱQ. Elda “elf” and ᴱQ. silqe “tree of hair” (QL/35; PME/35).

Neo-Quenya: I would update this word to ᴺQ. eldafindë “maidenhair fern, (lit.) elf tress” for purposes of Neo-Quenya, using the later word findë for “tress”.
