ᴹQ. helma n. “skin, fell” (Category: Skin, Hide)

ᴹQ. helma, n. “skin, fell, *hide” (Category: Skin, Hide)
ᴱQ. nautë “skin”

A noun in The Etymologies of the 1930s glossed “skin, fell” derived from the root ᴹ√SKEL (Ety/SKEL). It replaced ᴹQ. halma which was derived from the original form of the root {ᴹ√SKAL >>} ᴹ√SKEL (EtyAC/SKEL). Here “fell” is used in its archaic English sense of “an animal’s skin including its hair”, hence “*hide”.
