G. fathli n. “tasselled fringe” (Category: Adornment (other))

⚠️G. fathli, n. “tasselled fringe” (Category: Adornment (other))
ᴺS. ^fathol “(tasselled) fringe”

A noun appearing as G. fathli “tasselled fringe” in the Gnomish Lexicon of the 1910s, an elaboration of G. fath/fass “tassel” (GL/34).

Neo-Sindarin: I’d adapt this word as ᴺS. fathol “(tasselled) fringe” for purposes of Neo-Sindarin based on ᴺS. fass “tassel” from primitive *phasḷ, where the th arose from ancient sl becoming thl, after which the syllabified to ol.
