ᴹ√ÑOL root. “smell (intr.)”
A root in The Etymologies of the 1930s glossed “smell (intr.)”, with derivatives like N. angol or ongol “stench” and ᴹQ. holme “odour” (Ety/ÑOL; EtyAC/ÑOL). It is probably a later iteration of ᴱ√Y̯OLO “smell, stink, reek (intr.)” from the Qenya Lexicon of the 1910s which included the derivative ᴱQ. yolme “stench, stink” (QL/106). In contemporaneous Gnomish Lexicon the cognates of the Early Qenya forms began with g-, as in G. golod “stink, stench” (GL/41). By the 1920s, the initial primitive consonant had changed to ʒ- as in ᴱ✶ʒolwḗ > ᴱN. golw, ᴱQ. olwe or holwe “stink, stench” in Early Noldorin word lists from this period (PE13/145, 162), the latter probably representing vacillation on Tolkien part on the product of ʒ- in Qenya. ᴹ√ÑOL from The Etymologies of the 1930s is likely the latest iteration in this chain.
