Reference ✧ PE16/132 ✧ “boar”

ᴱQ. karkapolka n. “boar, *(lit.) tusk-pig” (Category: Boar)

The word ᴱQ. karkapolka “boar” appeared in the Qenya Lexicon of the 1910s as a combination of ᴱQ. karka “fang, tooth, tusk” and ᴱQ. polka “pig” (QL/48), hence literally “*tusk pig”.

Conceptual Development: The word for “boar” in the Early Qenya Word-lists of the 1920s was ᴱQ. úro (PE16/132), but its derivation is unclear.

Neo-Quenya: I’d use ᴺQ. carcapolca for “boar” in Neo-Quenya, as its etymology is more transparent.
