ᴱQ. qilta n. “belt, girdle” (Category: Belt, Girdle)

A noun appearing as ᴱQ. qilta “girdle, belt” in the Qenya Lexicon of the 1910s under the early root ᴱ√QḶTḶ (QL/78). It also appeared with the gloss “belt” in the contemporaneous Poetic and Mythological Words of Eldarissa (PME/78).

Neo-Quenya: For purposes of Neo-Quenya, I would retain ᴺQ. quilta “belt” from a Neo-Root ᴺ√KWILIT, but for “girdle” I would use Q. lesta (WJ/369).
