N. meglin adj. “*bear-like” (Category: Bear)

An adjective form meglin of megli “bear” appearing in The Etymologies of the 1930s (Ety/LIS).

Neo-Sindarin: The sound change dl > gl was not a feature of Sindarin, so most Neo-Sindarin writers adapt this word as ᴺS. medlin “bear-like”, as suggested in Hiswelókë’s Sindarin Dictionary (HSD).
