ᴺS. [N.] ^laug adj. “warm” (Category: Hot, Warm)
Conceptual Development: G. laug appeared in the Gnomish Lexicon of the 1910s glossed “(of plants) alive, having sap, green, vigorous” (GL/53), likely based on the early root ᴱ√LAWA having to do with the life of plants (QL/52).
Neo-Sindarin: This word is usually adapted as ᴺS. laug “warm” for purposes of Neo-Sindarin, as suggested in Hiswelókë’s Sindarin Dictionary (HSD), since the unvoicing of initial l is not a feature of later Sindarin.
