ᴱQ. pulko n. “body, trunk, bole of tree” (Category: Body)

The word ᴱQ. pulko “body, trunk, bole of tree” appeared in the Qenya Lexicon of the 1910s derived from the early root ᴱ√PULU “swell” (QL/75). The form ᴱQ. pulka appeared in the contemporaneous Gnomish Lexicon as a cognate of G. baul “body, trunk” (GL/22).

Neo-Quenya: I think this word is worth retaining as ᴺQ. pulco for purposes of Neo-Quenya, but when applied to humans I would use it more with the sense “*torso” (the main portion of the body) as opposed to the entire body, which would be Q. hröa.
