Q. Amanyar coll. “Those of Aman”

Q. Amanyar, coll. “Those of Aman”
A collective term referring to the Elves who reached Aman (SI/Úmanyar). It included the Noldorin Exiles who left to war against Morgoth, but excluded the Sindarin who never left Beleriand (WJ/373). It is a combination of the name Aman with the adjectival suffix -ya¹. It seems unlikely that the term Amanya would be used for a single Elf of the Amanyar, but it could be used as an adjective, for example Amanya Telerin referring to the Telerin elves that reach Aman (WJ/411).
