ᴱ√GWENE² root. “*large, wide”

⚠️ᴱ√GWENE² root. “*large, wide”
YAN¹ “wide, extensive, large, vast, huge; extend”

A root in the Gnomish Lexicon of the 1910s, with the derivatives like G. gwen(n) “big, large; fine” and G. Bladorwen “Wide Earth, Mother Earth” (GL/23, 45), thus probably meaning “*large, wide”. The name Bladorwen did not survive in the Legendarium and there are no signs of this root in Tolkien’s later writing.
