A noun for “pool” derived from the root ᴹ√LIN¹ (Ety/LIN¹). Its Quenya cognate ᴹQ. linya suggests its primitive form was *✶linyā [linjā]. If so, it is an example of how, after final [a] was lost, the final [j] became [i] and then became [e], as suggested by Helge Fauskanger (AL-Ilkorin/line).
A Doriathrin noun for “pool”, derived from root ᴹ√MBOTH (Ety/MBOTH). Its Quenya cognate ᴹQ. motto suggests a primitive form of *✶mbottʰō. As pointed out by Helge Fauskanger (AL-Doriathrin/moth), the primitive [mb-] might be expected to have become [b-], since initial nasals usually vanished before stops in Ilkorin, as for example Ilk. bril < MBIRÍL.
