ᴱQ. túpele n. “roofing, tiles, roof” (Category: Roof)

A noun appearing as ᴱQ. túpele “roofing, tiles, roof” in the Qenya Lexicon of the 1910s, an elaboration of ᴱQ. tupu- “to roof, cover” under the early root ᴱ√TUPU (QL/95).

Neo-Quenya: Since √TUP “cover” survives in Tolkien’s later writings, for purposes of Neo-Quenya I would retain ᴺQ. túpelë with the sense “roofing, tiles”, but for “roof” I would use the later word ᴹQ. tópa.
