ᴱQ. mella n. “girl” (Category: Girl)

⚠️ᴱQ. mella, n. “girl” (Category: Girl)
Q. nettë “(little) girl, ⚠️sister (diminutive), ️daughter, pretty little thing”

A word for “girl” in the Qenya Lexicon of the 1910s derived from the early root ᴱ√MELE “love”, but Tolkien marked it with a “?” (QL/60). The same word did appear in the Poetic and Mythological Words of Eldarissa, however (PME/60).
