ᴺS. !tolpheg n. “spoon” (Category: Spoon)

ᴺS. !tolpheg, n. “spoon” [created by Paul Strack] (Category: Spoon)
See G. salfinc for discussion.


!tolph “bowl, basin”
S. -eg¹ “diminutive/singular ending”

G. salfinc n. “spoon” (Category: Spoon)

A noun appearing as G. salfinc in the Gnomish Lexicon of the 1910s, apparently a diminutive form of G. salf “bowl” (GL/66).

Neo-Sindarin: Since I prefer ᴺS. tolph for “bowl” to avoid conflict with N. salff [salph] “broth”, I would update this Gnomish word to ᴺS. tolpheg “spoon” using the later diminutive suffix -eg.
