ᴺQ. !littë n. “ash” (Category: Ashes)

ᴺQ. !littë, n. “ash” [created by Helge Fauskanger, NQNT] (Category: Ashes)

A neologism for “ash” coined by Helge Fauskanger in his Neo-Quenya New Testament (NQNT), the Quenya equivalent of S. lith “ash”. In The Etymologies of the 1930s the Quenya cognate of N. lith was ᴹQ. litse (Ety/LIT), but in that document these words were glossed “sand”. Introducing a separate neologism ᴺQ. littë “ash” helps keep these two senses distinct.
