G. soth n. “bath” (Category: to Wash)

⚠️G. soth, n. “bath” (Category: to Wash)
ᴺS. !sûn “bath”

A noun appearing as G. soth “bath” in the Gnomish Lexicon of the 1910s derived from primitive ᴱ✶sou̯þ- (GL/68), where ou became ō as was usual in Gnomish of the 1910s.

Neo-Sindarin: In later Sindarin, ancient ou became ū which would produce sûth, but since this conflicts with N. sûth “draught”, I would coin a neologism ᴺS. sûn “bath” as the cognate of ᴺQ. súnë “bath”.
