Early Quenya


adjective. indoors, at home, homely, domestic

A word for “indoors, at home, homely, domestic” in the Qenya Lexicon of the 1910s, a combination of ᴱQ. indo “house” with the adjective suffix ᴱQ. -ite (QL/43).

Neo-Quenya: For “homely, domestic” I would update this word to ᴺQ. mardaitë using the initial element Q. marda “dwelling, house”, but for “at home” I would use attested [ᴹQ.] maryë (PE21/27).
