caer

noun. *flat isle on a river, [N.] flat isle on a river

A Noldorin noun derived from ᴹ√KAY “to lie” mentioned in the Quenya Verbal System of the 1940s that was “used of a flat isle in a river, opp[osite] of toll-” (PE22/126). The same form caer appeared as a derivative of √KAYA in notes on Words, Phrases and Passages from The Lord of the Rings from the late 1950s or early 1960s, but there it was unglossed and its meaning is unclear (PE17/101).
