ᴱQ. etl n. “ivy” (Category: Vine)

⚠️ᴱQ. etl, n. “ivy” (Category: Vine)
ᴺQ. etil “ivy”

A word appearing as ᴱQ. etl “ivy” in the Qenya Lexicon and Poetic and Mythological Words of Eldarissa of the 1910s derived from the early root ᴱ√ETE “cling together” (QL/36). In the Qenya Lexicon it had an alternate form etil.

Neo-Quenya: In Tolkien’s later writing, √ET meant “out(side)”, but I think this ivy word can still be based on this root in the sense of “*a thing clinging to the outside”; I would thus use ᴺQ. etil “ivy” for purposes of Neo-Quenya.
