Ilk. ring n. “cold pool or lake (in mountains)”

Ilk. ring n. “cold pool or lake (in mountains)”

A Doriathrin noun meaning “cold pool or lake (in mountains)” derived from the root ᴹ√RINGI (Ety/RINGI). Its Quenya cognate ᴹQ. ringwe suggests a primitive form *✶riñgwi [riŋgwi]. This is problematic, since [ŋg] vanished before [w] lengthening the preceding vowel, as with Dor. líw < ᴹ✶liñ(g)wi. It is possible, though, that this word developed directly from the root form *✶riñgi [riŋgi], as suggested by Helge Fauskanger (AL-Doriathrin/ring).
