G. niost n. “hive” (Category: Bee)
- ⚠️G. niost, n. “hive” (Category: Bee)
- ᴺS. ^níwost “hive”
A word appearing as G. niost “hive” in the Gnomish Lexicon of the 1910s based on G. nio(s) “bee” (GL/60). The second element might be G. ost “enclosure; town”.
Neo-Sindarin: For purposes of Neo-Sindarin I would adapt this words as ᴺS. níwost “hive”, a combination of ᴺS. nîw “bee” and S. ost “city, town”.
