See G. fwegra- for discussion.


^hweg “broom”

G. fwegra- v. “to sweep” (Category: to Sweep)

A word appearing as G. fwegra- “sweep” in the Gnomish Lexicon of the 1910s, a verb form of G. fweg “broom” (GL/36).

Neo-Sindarin: The fw- in G. fwegra- is likely the result of ancient sw-, so I would adapt this word as ᴺS. hwegra- “to sweep” for purposes of Neo-Sindarin since sw- became hw- in Sindarin of the 1950s and 60s.
