ᴺQ. !taira adj. “slow” (Category: Slow)

A neologism coined by Luinyelle posted on 2024-01-31 in the Vinyë Lambengolmor Discord Server (VLDS), an adjectival form of √TAY “stretch, extend”. This is an updated version of the early word ᴱQ. lenka “slow” from the 1910s, which was (partly) based on the 1910s root ᴱ√LENE¹ which had derivatives like ᴱQ. lenu- “to stretch”. I prefer to just retain [ᴺQ.] lenca for “slow” for purposes of Neo-Quenya.
