See G. mam for discussion.


G. mam n. “grandmother, mother” (Category: Grandmother)

A noun appearing as mam “grandmother, mother” in the Gnomish Lexicon, derived from ᴱ√maƀ or mam “something nice” (GL/57).

Neo-Sindarin: As we have no other attested alternatives, I would use ᴺS. mam for “grandmother” in Neo-Sindarin, based on a Neo-Root ᴺ√MAB (from primitive *mamba), but would not use it as “mother” for which we have plenty of later words.
