Element in: Q. avalerya-
perinadivided in middle, halved
perina adj.? *"divided in middle, halved" (PER) The word is not glossed, but seems to connect with the verb perya- "halve". If the relationship is the same as between the verb lerya- "to free" and the adj. lerina "free", then perina is most likely an adjective "halved"d.
fainu- vb. "release" (LT1:250). Rather lerya- or sen- in Tolkien's later Quenya.
au- (3) privative prefix, = "without" (AWA)
-lórasuffix. without, less
ava- (3) prefix "without" (AR2, AWA). In some cases apparently used as a mere negation prefix: The form avalerya in VT41:6 is seemingly a negated form of the verb lerya- "release, set free"; the verb avalerya- is suggested to have the same meaning as the root KHAP = "bind, make fast, restrain, deprive of liberty". Likewise, the verb avalatya- from the same source seems to mean "to close, shut", this being a negated form of a verb *latya- "open" (q.v.)
nec- prefix "without, -less" (PE17:167), cf. -enca, q.v.
penwithout, not having
[pen prep. "without, not having" (PE17:171). Cf. Ú #1.]
penpreposition. without, not having
-enca suffix "without, -less" (PE17:167), cf. nec-, q.v.
úpreposition/adverb. without, destitute of, with
Variations of the word: ū.
úwithout, destitute of
ú (1) adv. and prep. "without, destitute of" (VT39:14). Usually followed by genitive: ú calo "without light" (cala). In one source, ú is seemingly also used as a negative verb "was not" (VT49:13), but Tolkien revised the text in question.
