ᴱQ. irmin n. “the inhabited world” (Category: World)

⚠️ᴱQ. irmin, n. “the inhabited world” (Category: World)
Q. Ambar “The World, Earth, (lit.) Habitation, Settlement”

A word in the Qenya Lexicon of the 1910s glossed “the inhabited world” and derived from the root ᴱ√IŘI [IÐI] “dwell”, with the usual change of ancient ð > z > r (QL/43). It also appeared in the phrase ᴱQ. Irmina Telume “End of the World, Great End” in a list of names from the same period (PE13/104). In later writings it seems to have been supplanted by Q. Ambar of similar meaning.
