Element In


ᴱQ. qindl n. “a spindle, top” (Category: Spindle)

A noun appearing as ᴱQ. qindl “a spindle, top” in the Qenya Lexicon of the 1910s under the early root ᴱ√QIŘI [QIÐI] “*spin” (QL/77).

Neo-Quenya: Since I update this early root to ᴺ√KWIR for purposes of Neo-Eldarin, I would also update “spindle” to ᴺQ. quiril. I would extend its meaning to cover spinning toys like tops and whirligigs.
