Qenya zR5Ì#

ilfirin

adjective. immortal

An adjective for “immortal” appearing in the Etymologies of the 1930s as a negation of the adjective firin “dead (by natural cause)” (Ety/PHIR). Its initial element is the negative prefix ᴹQ. il-.

Conceptual Development: Neither this word or its elements appear in Tolkien’s later writings, but its Sindarin cognate S. alfirin “immortal” does appear as the name of a flower (LotR/875, PE17/100, Let/402). Tolkien may have revised the etymology and meaning of the Sindarin word, however.
