ᴱQ. ere(n) n. “iron, steel” (Category: Iron)

⚠️ᴱQ. ere(n), n. “iron, steel” (Category: Iron)
Q. anga “iron”
Q. tornanga “iron hard; hard-iron, *steel”

A word in the Qenya Lexicon of the 1910s glossed “iron or steel” (QL/36), equated ᴱQ. yeren which was elsewhere glossed “pig iron” (QL/105). ᴱQ. ĕrĕ(n) was also mentioned (along with yĕrĕ(n)) in the contemporaneous Gnomish Lexicon in the entry for G. ger “ore, metal” (GL/38). Its most notable use in the 1910s was as an element in ᴱQ. Eremandu or Erimandu “Hells of Iron” (PE15/20), a variant of ᴱQ. Angamandi (LT1/77). Since Tolkien only used the latter form in the narratives, it is likely Tolkien abandoned eren early on.
