noun. sun and moon

An (archaic?) dual formation for the “sun and moon” appearing in the Early Qenya Grammar and English-Qenya Dictionary of the 1920s (PE14/76; PE15/75), except that it appears to be a combination of ᴱQ. Rána “moon” and the dual variant of ᴱQ. rinku “orb of the moon”, hence is actually “moon and moon”.
