ᴹQ. aksa n. “ravine, narrow path; edge” (Category: Ravine, Pass)

⚠️ᴹQ. axa, n. “ravine, narrow path; edge” (Category: Ravine, Pass)
Q. (a)nacca “narrows, defile, pass, cut”
Q. címa “edge of a cutting weapon/tool”

A noun in The Etymologies of the 1930s given as ᴹQ. aksa “narrow path, ravine” derived from the root ᴹ√AK “narrow, confined” (Ety/AK). It was also the name of a tengwa in notes on The Feanorian Alphabet from the 1930s with the gloss “ravine” (PE22/22), and it reappeared in a later version of these notes from the 1940s, but its gloss was changed: {“ravine” >>} “edge” (PE22/51).

Neo-Quenya: For purposes of Neo-Quenya, I’d avoid this word and instead use Q. (a)nacca for “narrow path” and Q. címa for “edge”.
