ᴺQ. !lahlaraitë adj. “deaf, (lit.) unable to hear” (Category: Deaf)

ᴺQ. !lahlaraitë, adj. “deaf, (lit.) unable to hear” [created by Paul Strack] (Category: Deaf)

A neologism for “deaf” coined by Paul Strack in 2022 specifically for Eldamo, a combination of la- “not”, hlar- “hear”, and the suffix -itë “apt to do”, patterned after lacenítë “blind” (PE22/153). Helge Fauskanger instead used the neologism hlárelóra “deaf, *without-hearing” in his Neo-Quenya New Testament (NQNT), having the suffix [ᴹQ.] -lóra “without”.



Q. la- “not, in-, un-”
