Beware, older languages below! The languages below were invented during Tolkien's earlier period and should be used with caution. Remember to never, ever mix words from different languages!



adjective. echoing

A Doriathrin adjective for “echoing”, a combination of lóm “echo” and the adjective suffix -en (Ety/LAM). Its Quenya cognate lámina suggests a primitive form lāminā, from which the [[ilk|long [ā] became [ō]]] and the -en developed due to Ilkorin a*-affection]], as suggested by Helge Fauskanger (AL-Doriathrin/lómen).

Conceptual Development: Tolkien first wrote lómin (EtyAC/LAM), perhaps indicating some uncertainty on the exact functioning of Ilkorin a-affection on Tolkien’s part. In the North Sindarin dialect that was in some ways the conceptual successor to Ilkorin, [[norths|final [a] did not mutate preceding vowels]].
