ᴹQ. laira adj. “shady” (Category: Shade, Shadow)

⚠️ᴹQ. laira, adj. “shady” (Category: Shade, Shadow)
ᴹQ. halda¹ “veiled, hidden, shadowed, shady”

An adjective in The Etymologies of the 1930s glossed “shady” under the root ᴹ√DAY “shadow” (Ety/DAY; EtyAC/DAY). This root was primarily used for N. dae “shadow” in N. Dor-Daedeloth “Land of the Shadow of Dread”; in later writings the Dae- element in that name seems to have become dae(r) “great” (WJ/183), so I suspect ᴹ√DAY “shadow” and its derivatives were abandoned.
