Ilk. lómen adj. “echoing”

A Doriathrin adjective for “echoing”, a combination of lóm “echo” and the adjective suffix -en (Ety/LAM). Its Quenya cognate lámina suggests a primitive form *✶lāminā, from which the long [ā] became [ō] and the -en developed due to Ilkorin a-affection, as suggested by Helge Fauskanger (AL-Doriathrin/lómen).

Conceptual Development: Tolkien first wrote lómin (EtyAC/LAM), perhaps indicating some uncertainty on the exact functioning of Ilkorin a-affection on Tolkien’s part. In the North Sindarin dialect that was in some ways the conceptual successor to Ilkorin, final [a] did not mutate preceding vowels.
