Q. nortil n. “cape (of land)” (Category: Isle, Island)

Q. nortil, n. “cape (of land)” (Category: Isle, Island)

A word in notes from the late 1960s described as “a cape (of land), only used of the ends of promontories or other seaward projections that were relatively sharp and spike-like” (VT47/28). It is a combination of Q. nór “land” and √TIL “point”, so literally “*land-point”.
