ᴺQ. [ᴱQ.] nó- v. “to be born, ⚠️become” (Category: to Bear (of Mother))

ᴺQ. [ᴱQ.] nó-, v. “to be born, ⚠️become” (Category: to Bear (of Mother))
See ᴱQ. nó- for discussion.


ᴱQ. nó- v. “to be born, become” (Category: to Bear (of Mother))

A verb appearing as ᴱQ. nó- “be born” in the Qenya Lexicon of the 1910s under the early root ᴱ√ “become, be born”, with an unusual past[?] form nōte (QL/66). Somewhat later Tolkien added the gloss “become” to the verb nó- as well.

Neo-Quenya: I would retain ᴺQ. nó- “be born” for purposes of Neo-Quenya since the root √ survived in his later writings, and this verb is somewhat supported by the later adjective nóna “born”, and I would conjugate it like ná- “be”. For “become” I would use ola-.
