Ilk. gwine n. “evening” (Category: Evening)

⚠️Ilk. gwine n. “evening” (Category: Evening)

A noun for “evening” derived from primitive ᴹ✶winyā [winjā], but it was rejected along with its root ᴹ√WIN (Ety/WIN). It is the clearest example of the Ilkorin phonetic development whereby final [j] became [i] and then became [e], since Tolkien indicated the intermediate forms before rejecting the word.
