S. †im³ n. “valley” (Category: Dale, Valley)

S. †im³, n. “valley; [N.] dell, deep vale” (Category: Dale, Valley)

An archaic element meaning “valley” that survived only in compounds, a derivation of ✶imbi “between” (VT47/14). The basic sense “valley” was transferred to its more elaborate form imlad as in Imladris “Rivendell”, and †im “valley” fell out of use due to its conflicted with other words like the reflexive pronoun im.

Conceptual Development: N. imm “dell, deep vale” was mentioned in The Etymologies of the 1930s as a derivative of the root ᴹ√IMBE, along side its elaboration N. imlad of the same meaning (Ety/IMBE).
