noun. building (especially of wood), wooden hall, construction, edifice

A noun in The Etymologies of the 1930s glossed “building (especially of wood), wooden hall”, an elaboration of ᴹQ. pano “piece of shaped wood” under the root ᴹ√PAN “place, set, fix in place (especially of wood)” (Ety/PAN). The form umpano “build[ing]” appeared under the intensive root ᴹ√N- (EtyAC/N), but under the entry for ᴹ√PAN Tolkien considered and then rejected this alternate form: {ampano >> umpano >>} ampano (EtyAC/PAN). The word ampano “building, construction” appeared in The Feanorian Alphabet from the 1930s and 40s (PE22/22, 52), and ampanō̆ “building, construction, edifice” appeared in the Quenya Verbal System from the late 1940s (PE22/114).
