G. irt n. “beak (of small birds)” (Category: Nose)
A noun appearing as G. irt⁽²⁾ “beak (of small birds)” in the Gnomish Lexicon of the 1910s (GL/52), clearly based on the early root ᴱ√ᴵRTYᴵR “peck, prick” (QL/43). There was no irt⁽¹⁾.
Neo-Sindarin: For purposes of Neo-Sindarin, I would adapt this word as ᴺS. irth “beak” based on the Neo-Root ᴺ√IRIT; compare S. amarth < ✶(a)mbarta.
