ᴹQ. nasto n. “animal, beast” (Category: Animal)

⚠️ᴹQ. nasto, n. “animal, beast” (Category: Animal)
Q. laman “animal, [ᴹQ.] tame beast”

A word for an “animal” or “beast” the Quenya Verbal System of the 1940s, probably based on the root ᴹ√ and thus originally meaning “*being” (PE22/111, 116). It appeared in the phrases ᴹQ. farastea nasto “beast of the chase” and ᴹQ. farea nasto “hunting animal, beast of prey”, and in the latter phrase it replaced laman “animal” (PE22/116 note #92).

Neo-Quenya: This word appears nowhere else, and Q. laman “animal” reemerged in the Quendi and Eldar essay of 1959-60, so I prefer that word over nasto.
