ᴱQ. telpingwe n. “silverfish” (Category: Fish)

A noun appearing as ᴱQ. telpingwe “silverfish” in the Qenya Lexicon of the 1910s as a combination of ᴱQ. telpe “silver” and ᴱQ. ingwe “fish” (QL/91).

Neo-Quenya: I think ᴺQ. telpingwë “silverfish” can be retained in Neo-Quenya as a combination of the later words Q. telpë “silver” and Q. lingwë “fish”, where the initial li of “fish” was reduced by haplology.
