G. orfing n. “pear” (Category: Pear)

A word appearing as G. orfing (orf-fing) “pear” in the Gnomish Lexicon of the 1910s (GL/63). Its first element is clearly G. orf “apple”, and its second element is likely related to G. fingl “tress” (GL/35), so perhaps “*hair-apple”.

Neo-Quenya: I’d retain ᴺS. orfing for purposes of Neo-Sindarin, with its second element still being S. fing “hair”.
