N. glaew n. “ointment, salve” (Category: Ointment)

N. glaew, n. “ointment, salve” (Category: Ointment)

A word for “ointment” in The Etymologies of the 1930s derived from primitive ᴹ✶(g)laibē under the root ᴹ√(G)LIB where the G appeared in Noldorin derivations as indicated by the form g-laew (Ety/LIB²; EtyAC/LIB²). In notes on The Feanorian Alphabet also from the 1930s, it was given as (archaic Gondolic) glaiw “salve” from ON. glaibe (PE22/32). A more detailed derivation appeared in notes from around 1940: ON. glaibe > glēbe > glaef > glaew (TMME/53).
