ᴱQ. lukso (luksu-) n. “mud” (Category: Mud, Mire)

The word ᴱQ. lukso (luksu-) appeared in the Qenya Lexicon of the 1910s with the gloss “mud” as a derivative of the root ᴱ√LUKU (QL/56).

Neo-Quenya: The root √LUK had other meanings in Tolkien’s later writings. However, the later root √LOG “wet (and soft), soaked, swampy” seems to be similar in sense to early ᴱ√LUKU, so this word for “mud” might be salvaged as a neologism: *log-sō > lokso > ᴺQ. loxo.
