Ilk. côm n. “sickness” (Category: Sick; Sickness)
A noun meaning “sickness” (Ety/KWAM). Its Quenya cognate ᴹQ. qáme indicates a primitive form *✶kwāmē, so this word is an example of how initial [kwo] became [ko] after the primitive vowel [ā] became [ō]. Both these developments were noted by Helge Fauskanger (AL-Ilkorin/côm).
