G. nacthanaith n. “incisor (tooth)” (Category: Tooth)

⚠️G. nacthanaith, n. “incisor (tooth)” (Category: Tooth)
ᴺS. ^nagnel “incisor (tooth)”

A noun appearing as G. nacthanaith “incisor (tooth)” in the Gnomish Lexicon of the 1910s, a combination of G. nactha- “bite” and G. naith “tooth” (GL/41).

Neo-Sindarin: I would adapt this as ᴺS. nagnel “incisor” for purposes of Neo-Sindarin, using the later word [N.] nêl for “tooth”, and with the initial element [N.] nag- “bite”.
