ᴱQ. nes¹ n. “mead, valley, land” (Category: Plain, Field)
A noun given as archaic ᴱQ. †nes (ness-) “mead, valley, land” in the Qenya Lexicon of the 1910s under the root ᴱ√NEŘE [NEÐE], but Tolkien indicated it should be transferred to ᴱ√NESE, which is a much more plausible root for this word (QL/66).
