ᴱQ. lindelokte n. “laburnum, (lit.) singing cluster” (Category: Tree (other))

⚠️ᴱQ. lindeloctë, n. “laburnum, (lit.) singing cluster” (Category: Tree (other))
ᴺQ. ^lindelos “laburnum, (lit.) singing cluster”

A word in the Qenya Lexicon of the 1910s appearing as ᴱQ. lindelokte “singing-cluster, laburnum”, a combination of ᴱQ. lin¹ (lind-) “musical voice” and ᴱQ. lokte “flower cluster” (QL/55). ᴱQ. Lindelokte was also an earlier name for Q. Laurelin, one of the two trees (LT1/22).

Neo-Quenya: For purposes of Neo-Quenya I would update this word to ᴺQ. lindelos (lindelós-) “laburnum, (lit.) singing cluster”, using the later elements lindë “singing” and lós [þ] “mass of flowers”. I think this word can coexist with culumalda which Tolkien said also might refer to a laburnum (RC/626).
