ᴱQ. wembe n. “worm” (Category: Worm)

⚠️ᴱQ. wembë, n. “worm” (Category: Worm)
ᴺQ. ^vembë “worm”

A noun appearing as ᴱQ. {wembe >>} ’wembe “worm” in the Qenya Lexicon of the 1910s under the early root ᴱ√GWEVE; it had a longer variant ’wembil (QL/103). Wembe “worm” was also mentioned in the contemporaneous Poetic and Mythological Words of Eldarissa (PME/103).

Neo-Quenya: Helge Fauskanger adapted this word as ᴺQ. vembë “worm” in his Neo-Quenya New Testament (NQNT), and I follow his suggestion in part for better compatibility with adapted Gnomish forms from the Neo-Root ᴺ√WEB.
