ᴺS. !sarth n. “note, jot, scribbling” (Category: Letter, Epistle)
A neologism coined by Paul Strack on 2023-04-17 as a loan word from ᴺQ. sartë of the same meaning. It replaces the neologism ᴺS. taith “note” (< *tekti) coined by Röandil in the “Neologism of the Day” series on the Vinyë Lambengolmor Discord Server (VLDS) on 2023-04-07. This conflicts with attested word taith “sign, symbol, mark” (PE17/43), but Röandil felt that taith “note” could coexist with taith “mark, symbol” in the same way that English “letter” (of the alphabet) can coexist with “letter” (a missive). However, I’m generally uncomfortable with neologisms that collided with attested words and prefer sarth.
