Q. olosta adj. “dreamy” (Category: Dream)

Q. olosta, adj. “dreamy, *dreamlike” (Category: Dream)

An adjective for “dreamy” appearing in notes from the 1960s as a derivative of the root √OLO-S (UT/396).

Conceptual Development: The word ᴱQ. olōrea appeared in the Qenya Lexicon of the 1910s with the gloss “dreamy” under the root ᴱ√LORO (QL/56) and the gloss “dreamlike” under the root ᴱ√OLOR (QL/69), in both cases an adjectival form of ᴱQ. olōre “dream”.

Neo-Quenya: For purposes of Neo-Quenya, I’d use olosta for things that are dream-like, and ᴺQ. olorda for people in a dream-like state.
