G. glair n. “meadow” (Category: Plain, Field)

⚠️G. glair, n. “meadow” (Category: Plain, Field)
S. glaer “[N.] long lay, narrative poem, ⚠️[S.] tale”

A noun in the Gnomish Lexicon of the 1910s glossed “meadow” (GL/34). It also had an archaic variant form †lair, but Tolkien rejected this (GL/52). It was probably derived from the early root ᴱ√LAẎA “be alive, flourish” as suggested by Christopher Tolkien (LT1A/Tári-Laisi; QL/52).
