ᴱQ. nyél n. “woman” (Category: Woman)

⚠️ᴱQ. nyél, n. “woman” (Category: Woman)
Q. nís “woman”

A word for “woman” in Early Qenya Word-lists of the 1920s with stem form nyel-, as indicated by its accusative nyela (PE16/135). Its etymology is unclear; Patrick Wynne and Christopher Gilson suggested it might be connected to the early root ᴱ√NYEHE “weep” or later root ᴹ√NYEL “ring, sing”, but these both feel like stretches to me.
