ᴺS. [ᴱN.] plador n. “oar” (Category: Oar)
|√PAL||“wide, broad, extended”|
In Early Noldorin Word-lists of the 1920s, there was a word ᴱN. plados “surf, land's edge” (PE13/152), possibly derived from the early root ᴱ√PALAS whose derivatives include ᴱQ. palastor “surf” (QL/72). The Gnomish Lexicon of the 1910s instead had a pair of words G. plados and plador with the gloss “oar” (GL/64), probably derived from √PALA “flatness”.
Neo-Eldarin: ᴱN. plados “surf, shoreline” was probably replaced by S. falas, but I think the Gnomish word for “oar” is worth salvaging as a neologism: ᴺS. plador, rederived from the same root √PAL “wide”.
