⚠️ᴱN. esg, n. “sharp upstanding rock in water; [G.] sharp point, sharp edge” (Category: Rock, Stone)
N. carag “spike, tooth of rock”
N. egnas “sharp point, peak”

This noun appeared in the Gnomish Lexicon of the 1910s as G. esc “sharp point, sharp edge” (GL/31), related to G. aisc “sharp, bitter; sharp edge of a blade” (GL/18), and derived from the early root ᴱ√eke or one of its variants eχe or aχa (GL/31). In Early Noldorin Word-lists of the 1920s there was a similar word ᴱN. esk or esg “sharp upstanding rock in water”, the first of these probably an archaic form with sk > sg (PE13/143).
