Q. nanca adj. “*hewn, slain” (Category: to Hew)

Q. nanca, adj. “*hewn, ⚠️slain” (Category: to Hew)

An adjective in notes from 1967 derived from primitive ✶ndakna (PE17/68) and hence based on the root √NDAK “hew, slay”, so perhaps meaning “*hewn” or “*slain”. For purposes of Neo-Quenya, I would assume “*hewn”, since nahtana likely means “*slain”.
