ᴺQ. [ᴱQ.] ^sampo n. “*cellar, vault; ⚠️cave, hollow” (Category: Cave)
Neo-Quenya: Derivatives of the early root ᴱ√KAVA are no longer suitable for Neo-Quenya, as both √KAM and √KAB have very different meanings in later writings, but I think this word may be adapted as ᴺQ. sampo, reconceived as a derivative of √SAP “dig”. In the Qenya Lexicon, ᴱQ. sambo was “cave, hollow” along with variant ᴱQ. sampe (QL/82), but there are plenty of other cave words in Quenya, so using sampo for “cellar, vault” seems better to me.

A noun in the Qenya Lexicon of the 1910s glossed “cave, hollow” with variants sampe and sampo derived from the root ᴱ√SAPA “dig, excavate” (QL/82), both variants also appearing in the Poetic and Mythological Words of Eldarissa with the gloss “cave” (PME/82).
