Q. Mettarë, pn. “last day of the year, (lit.) *end-day”

The last day of the year in the calendar of Imladris and the Steward’s Reckoning (LotR/1108-9), a compound of metta “ending” and “day”.

Conceptual Development: In drafts of the Lord of the Rings appendices from the 1940s, the last day of the year was first given as ᴹQ. Qantarie “Day of Completion, Oldyear’s Day” (PM/127), where its first element was ᴹQ. qanta “full”. Later in the drafts it was given as ᴹQ. Mettare “Year’s end” (PM/134).
