ᴹQ. hún (hun-) n. “earth” (Category: Ground, Soil)

ᴹQ. hún (hun-), n. “earth, *ground” (Category: Ground, Soil)

A word in the Declension of Nouns from the early 1930s with stem form hun- and gloss “earth” (QL/39). It might be a later iteration of ᴱQ. han “ground, earth” from the Qenya Lexicon of the 1910s (QL/39), and if so then hún might also be used as “*ground”. I think it is useful to assume so for purposes of Neo-Quenya, as the other attested word for “ground”, Q. talan, is probably used more often for “floor”, including floors above the ground level.

ᴱQ. han (hamb-) n. “ground, earth” (Category: Ground, Soil)

A noun in the Qenya Lexicon of the 1910s with stem form hamb- and gloss “the ground”, derived from the root ᴱ√HAMA (QL/39). The contemporaneous Poetic and Mythological Words of Eldarissa had only its stem form hamb- with the glosses “ground, earth” (PME/39).
