ᴱQ. lamáre n. “flock” (Category: Herdsman)

A noun in the Qenya Lexicon of the 1910s glossed “flock” with variants lāmáre and lamárin, based on ᴱQ. lama “head of cattle or sheep” (QL/50). It was first written as lāma, then amended to lāmáre, -in with lámarin written after it. The editors (Gilson, Hostetter, Wynne and Smith) suggested that this likely indicated two forms: lamáre and lámarin.

Neo-Quenya: For purposes of Neo-Eldarin, I would adapt this word as ᴺQ. lamnarë “flock, *herd”, based on the later word Q. laman (lamn-) “[tame] animal”, with the same suffix -re. This suggestion came from Röandil in a Discord chat from 2022-03-18.
