ᴺQ. !milla adj. “oily” (Category: Oil)

ᴺQ. !milla, adj. “oily” (Category: Oil)
See ᴱQ. ilqa for discussion.



ᴱQ. ilqa adj. “oily, smooth, glossy” (Category: Oil)

A word appearing as ᴱQ. ilqa “oily, smooth, glossy” in the Qenya Lexicon of the 1910s under the early root ᴱ√ILI¹ “shine oily” (QL/42).

Neo-Quenya: For purposes of Neo-Quenya I would update this word to ᴺQ. milla “oily” from *mil’gā for better compatibility with ᴺQ. millo “oil”.

Reference ✧ QL/42 ✧ “oily, smooth, glossy”
