Q. numba adj. “bent, humped” (Category: to Bend)

Q. numba, adj. “bent, humped” (Category: to Bend)
ᴱQ. cauca “crooked, bent, bowed, humped”

An adjective glossed “bent, humped” from notes written around 1959, derived from the root √NDUP/B “bending and drooping” (PE17/168). For purposes of Neo-Quenya, I would use this adjective for “bent” in a malformed way, as opposed to cúna for “bent, curved” naturally.
