adjective. drowsy, dreamy, lazy

An adjective appearing as G. lorc “drowsy, dreamy, lazy” in the Gnomish Lexicon of the 1910s (GL/54), based on the early root ᴱ√LORO “doze, slumber” (QL/56).

Neo-Sindarin: I would update this word to ᴺS. olost “drowsy, dreamy, lazy” for purposes of Neo-Sindarin, based on the later word Q. olosta “dreamy” (UT/396). I would assume it refers to a state of being drowsy or allowing one’s mind to drift without any particular focus.
