G. baul n. “body, trunk” (Category: Body)

⚠️G. baul, n. “body, trunk” (Category: Body)
ᴺS. !polch “trunk, torso”

The word G. baul “body, trunk” appeared in the Gnomish Lexicon of the 1910s as a cognate of ᴱQ. pulka (GL/22), while ᴱQ. pulko “body, trunk, bole of tree” appeared in the contemporaneous Qenya Lexicon of the 1910s under the early root ᴱ√PULU “swell” (QL/75).

Neo-Sindarin: I would adapt this word as ᴺS. polch for closer alignment with its (Neo) Quenya form. When applied to humans I would use it more with the sense “*torso” (the main portion of the body) as opposed to the entire body, which would be S. rhond.
