S. #rest n. “*cut” (Category: to Cut)

S. #rest, n. “[N.] cut” (Category: to Cut)
G. benn² “shape, cut, fashion, shapeliness”
G. fanc “cut”

A noun appearing as N. rhest in The Etymologies of the 1930s as a cognate to ᴹQ. rista “a cut”, both derived from the root ᴹ√RIS (Ety/RIS). It appeared in later writings as an element in the (untranslated) name Eglarest (S/58; WJ/365). In Noldorin, an initial r unvoiced to rh, but this was not the case in Sindarin, so its independent Sindarin form is probably rest.
