ᴱ√FṆÐṆ root. “*omen, ominous”

An unglossed root in the Qenya Lexicon of the 1910s, first given as ᴱ√FANA but then changed to ᴱ√FṆÐṆ (QL/38). It had derivatives such as ᴱQ. fando “portent, omen” and ᴱQ. fandelu “monster”, so it perhaps had a basic sense like “*omen, ominous”. One notable derivative was ᴱQ. Fantor used a collective name for Lórien and Mandos (QL/38; LT1/79). In later writings this name became ᴹQ. Fantur “Lord of Cloud” (Ety/SPAN) and then Q. Fëanturi “Masters of Spirits” (S/28), making it likely this early root was abandoned.
