G. pruin n. “charcoal” (Category: Match, Fire Stick)

A noun appearing as G. pruin “charcoal” in the Gnomish Lexicon of the 1910s (GL/64) probably related to the early root ᴱ√PUŘU “consume by fire” [PUÐU] (QL/75). Its gloss was deleted.

Neo-Sindarin: I think this word is worth salvaging in Neo-Sindarin, reconceived of as a derivative of an augmented variant of the later root √RUY “blaze (red)”.
