ᴺQ. !mortavar n. “ebony, ⚠️ivory” (Category: Wood, Timber)

ᴺQ. !mortavar, n. “ebony, ⚠️ivory” [created by Helge Fauskanger, NQNT] (Category: Wood, Timber)

A neologism coined by Helge Fauskanger in his Neo-Quenya New Testament (NQNT). He translated it as “ivory”, but the elements of the word are √MOR “dark” and [ᴹQ.] tavar “wood”, so the actual meaning is probably intended to be “ebony”. For “ivory” I recommend instead ᴺQ. ilcaxo.



MOR “black, dark, darkness”
ᴹQ. tavar “wood (material)”
