ᴺQ. [ᴱQ.] nyelecca n. “onyx” (Category: Gem, Jewel)

ᴺQ. [ᴱQ.] nyelecca, n. “onyx” (Category: Gem, Jewel)
See ᴱQ. nyelekka for discussion.


ᴱQ. nyelekka n. “onyx” (Category: Gem, Jewel)

The noun ᴱQ. nyelekka “onyx” appeared in the English-Qenya Dictionary of the 1920s (PE15/76). It was probably related to ᴱQ. nyelet (nyelek-) “nail (of the finger)” from the same document (PE15/75).

Neo-Quenya: I’d retain the word ᴺQ. nyelecca “onyx” for purposes of Neo-Quenya derived from a Neo-Root ᴺ√NYELEK.
