ᴺQ. [ᴱQ.] polondë n. “alder” (Category: Birch)
A word for “alder” [a type of birch tree] in Early Qenya Word-lists of the 1920s of unclear derivation (PE16/140).
Conceptual Development: The Qenya Lexicon of the 1910s had ᴱQ. ulwe or uluswe “alder tree”, also of unclear derivation (QL/97). The English-Qenya Dictionary of the 1920s had ulwe or ululwe “alder, alder-tree”, but this entry was deleted (PE15/69).
Neo-Quenya: Since it does not conflict with any later words, I would retain ᴺQ. polondë “alder” for purposes of Neo-Quenya.
