ᴺQ. !mirupio n. “grape, (lit.) wine-berry” (Category: Grape)

ᴺQ. !mirupio, n. “grape, (lit.) wine-berry” (Category: Grape)

A neologism for “grape” coined by Paul Strack in 2018 specifically for Eldamo, a combination of [ᴱQ.] miru “wine” (as in miruvórë) and [ᴱQ.] pio “berry”, hence = “wine berry”, as inspired by the similarly formed G. mirobin “grape” (GL/57).

Alternate Forms: Helge Fauskanger instead used ᴺQ. tiuma for “grape” in his Neo-Quenya New Testament (NQNT), apparently based on the root ᴹ√TIW “thick”, though the rationale isn’t clear.


miru “wine”
pio “berry, plum, cherry”


ᴺQ. !tiuma n. “grape” (Category: Grape)
