S. parch adj. “naked (of persons)” (Category: Naked, Bare)

⚠️S. parch, adj. “naked (of persons)” (Category: Naked, Bare)
N. hell¹ “naked, *stripped”
N. parch “dry”

An adjective for “naked (of persons)” derived from √PAR “peel” appearing in notes from around 1959 (PE17/86).

Conceptual Development: There was a similar word G. falon or falin “naked” in the Gnomish Lexicon of the 1910s (GL/33), derived from the early root ᴱ√FALA “bare, nude” (QL/37).

Neo-Sindarin: I would avoid these words for purposes of Neo-Sindarin, using [N.] hell “naked” instead. In the case of 1959 parch, it conflicts with 1930s N. parch “dry”, and while we have number of options for “naked” words, there are not many good options for “dry”.
