verb. to put to sleep, send to sleep

A verb appearing as G. lortha- “put to sleep, send to sleep” in the Gnomish Lexicon of the 1910s (GL/54), clearly based on the early root ᴱ√LORO “doze, slumber” (QL/56).

Neo-Quenya: I’d retain the verb ᴺS. lortha- for purposes of Neo-Sindarin.


  • ᴱ√LORO “doze, slumber”
    • ᴱ√OLO “*dream”
