Q. antil n. “*middle finger” (Category: Finger)

⚠️Q. antil, n. “*middle finger” (Category: Finger)
Q. lependë “middle finger”

An alternate name for the middle finger in rough drafts of Eldarin Hands, Fingers and Numerals from 1968, a combination of √ƷAN “adorn” and Q. til “tip” (VT47/26-27 note #35). As pointed out by Patrick Wynne, this represents an abnormal development for initial ʒ, vanishing rather than becoming h; this vanishing of ʒ was a feature of Quenya Tolkien toyed with in the late 1960s.
