A noun in the Gnomish Lexicon of the 1910s given as {grind >>} grinn “ankle, wrist”, an element in G. mabrin(d) “wrist = *hand grinn” and G. talgrin(d) “ankle = *foot grinn” (GL/42, 55, 69). As such, it seems to refer to a body joint, but specifically limited to wrists or ankles. It may be related to (a variant of) the element rikta in ᴱQ. marikta “wrist” under the early root ᴱ√RIKI (QL/80).
