N. chwest n. “puff, breath, breeze” (Category: Breeze)

A noun in The Etymologies of the 1930s appearing as N. chwest “puff, breath, breeze” (ON. hwesta) from the root ᴹ√SWES “noise of blowing or breathing” (Ety/SWES).

Neo-Sindarin: If adapted to Neo-Sindarin, this word would be ᴺS. hwest as suggested in Hiswelókë’s Sindarin Dictionary (HSD). Its Quenya cognate Q. hwesta “breeze” appeared in The Lord of the Rings Appendix E (LotR/1123), indicating this word’s ongoing validity.
