Q. lórë n. “dream” (Category: Dream)

Q. lórë, n. “[ᴹQ.] slumber, *sleep; [Q.] dream” (Category: Dream)
ᴱQ. fúmë “(deep) sleep”
ᴱQ. murmë “slumber, sleep”

A word for “dream” in Tolkien’s later writings, most notably as an element in Lórien “*Dream Lands” (Let/308; PE17/80). In The Etymologies of the 1930s, however, ᴹQ. lóre was glossed “slumber” under from the root {ᴹ√LOR >>} ᴹ√LOS “sleep” (Ety/LOS).

Neo-Quenya: I generally use √LOR for “sleep” and √OLOS for “dream” for purposes of Neo-Eldarin. As such, I would use lóre for both “slumber, *sleep” and “dream” for purposes of Neo-Quenya, likely a blending of primitive *lōre and *lōse. But I would use it more for a “(dreamful) sleep”, with olor as the proper word for “dream” or “vision”.
