Early Quenya


noun. daffodil, (lit.) yellow laughter

A noun appearing as ᴱQ. kankale-malina “daffodil” in the Qenya Lexicon and Poetic and Mythological Words of Eldarissa of the 1910s, a combination of ᴱQ. kankale “laughter” and ᴱQ. malina “yellow” (QL/44; PME/44).

Neo-Quenya: For purposes of Neo-Quenya I would update this word to ᴺQ. lalië-malina “daffodil, (lit.) yellow laughter” using a later form [ᴺQ.] lalië for “laughter”.
