ᴹQ. apsa¹ n. “meat, cooked food” (Category: Meat)

ᴹQ. apsa¹, n. “meat, cooked food” (Category: Meat)
ᴹQ. apsa² “juice”
ᴱQ. hara(nda) “flesh-meat”
ᴹQ. maxë² “meat”

A noun for “cooked food, meat” in The Etymologies of the 1930s derived from the root ᴹ√AP (Ety/AP). The word apsa “meat” also appeared in notes on The Feanorian Alphabet from the 1930s and 40s (PE22/21, 50), though in the 1940s version its gloss was revised to “juice” (PE22/50 note #181).

Neo-Quenya: For purposed of Neo-Quenya, I’d stick to the better-known meaning “(cooked) meat” from The Etymologies. I would use it for “meat” used in cooking and eating, as opposed to Q. hrávë “flesh” as part of a body.
