ᴱQ. óleme n. “elbow” (Category: Elbow)

A word appearing as ᴱQ. ōleme “elbow” in the Qenya Lexicon of the 1910s derived from the early root ᴱ√OLO¹ “tip” (QL/69). It appeared with the same gloss in the contemporaneous Poetic and Mythological Words of Eldarissa (PME/69).

Neo-Quenya: I think it is worth retaining ᴺQ. ólemë “elbow” for purposes of Neo-Quenya, as there are no other attested Quenya “elbow” words. It is perhaps derived from a variant of √LIM “link, join”.
