ᴺQ. [ᴱQ.] axína adj. “(of) steel, *like steel” (Category: Iron)

ᴺQ. [ᴱQ.] axína, adj. “(of) steel, *like steel” (Category: Iron)
See ᴱQ. aksína for discussion.


axë “steel”

ᴱQ. aksína adj. “[of] steel” (Category: Iron)

An unglossed word appearing as ᴱQ. aksīna in the English-Qenya Dictionary of the 1920s, an adjectival form of ᴱQ. akse “steel” (PE15/77). It appeared after the partitive form aksīnen of the noun, which could also function as an adjective meaning “of steel” as mentioned in the contemporaneous Early Qenya Grammar (PE14/48). It could be that aksína had the same meaning, or a slightly different meaning such as “*like steel”.

Conceptual Development: In the Qenya Lexicon of the 1910s it was ᴱQ. yaksina “of steel” based on ᴱQ. Y̯akse “steel” (QL/105).

Neo-Quenya: I would retain adjective ᴺQ. axína “(of) steel, *like steel” for purposes of Neo-Quenya since I also retain the noun ᴺQ. axë “steel”.
