noun. river (near its source)

A noun in the Qenya Lexicon of the 1910s, a combination of ᴱQ. kelu- “flow” and ᴱQ. sindi “river” (QL/46; PME/84). In the contemporaneous Poetic and Mythological Words of Eldarissa, it was glossed “river near its source” (PME/84), and so probably referred to the initial outflow of a river.
