ᴺQ. [ᴱQ.] ravennë n. “she-lion, *lioness” (Category: Lion)

ᴺQ. [ᴱQ.] ravennë, n. “she-lion, *lioness” (Category: Lion)
See ᴱQ. ravenne for discussion.


ᴱQ. ravenne n. “she-lion” (Category: Lion)

A word appearing as ᴱQ. ravenne “she-lion” in the Qenya Lexicon of the 1910s, a feminine variant of ᴱQ. rau “lion” (QL/79). It was also mentioned in the Poetic and Mythological Words of Eldarissa (PME/79).

Neo-Quenya: This word could plausibly be derived from the root ᴹ√RAW that was the basis for later “lion” words, so I would retain this word as ᴺQ. ravennë “she-lion, *lioness” for purposes of Neo-Quenya.
