ᴱQ. lausta-² v. “to roar, rush [making a rushing sound]” (Category: Noise, Thunder)

A verb appearing in several Early Qenya poems from around 1930, glossed “roar” (MC/213) or “rush” (MC/220), or in one place “lausted (made a windy noise)” (MC/216). Its etymology is very unclear, but it could be related to the early root ᴱ√RAVA with various derived “lion” words (QL/79), and so meaning “roar” by analogy with that animal with l/r variation in the initial letter. See also Q. rávëa “roaring” from versions of the Markirya poem from the 1960s.

ᴱQ. lausto adv. “*noisily” (Category: Noise, Thunder)

Apparently an adverbial form of ᴱQ. lausta- “to roar, rush” in drafts of the Oilima Markirya from around 1930 (PE16/57, 60), in context perhaps meaning “*noisily” as suggested by Gilson, Welden and Hostetter (PE16/59).
