ᴺQ. [ᴱQ.] salca n. “scythe” (Category: Scythe, Sickle)

ᴺQ. [ᴱQ.] salca, n. “scythe” (Category: Scythe, Sickle)
See ᴱQ. salka for discussion.



ᴱQ. salka n. “scythe” (Category: Scythe, Sickle)

A word in the Qenya Lexicon of the 1910s appearing as ᴱQ. salka “scythe” under the early root ᴱ√SḶKḶ¹ that was also the basis for “grass” words (QL/84).

Neo-Quenya: Since ᴹ√SALAK+ was still the basis for “grass” words in The Etymologies of the 1930s (Ety/SALÁK), I think ᴺQ. salca “scythe” can be salvaged for purposes of Neo-Quenya.
