bam

noun. sheep

A neologism for “sheep” coined by Paul Strack in 2018 specifically for Eldamo, derived from a reduplicated word *mbambā from primitive ✶mbā “sheep”; Q. máma “sheep” shows signs of similar reduplication. This is only one of various possibilities for neologisms for “sheep”: in VQP (VQP) Gábor Lőrinczi suggested ᴺS. maw “sheep” as a direct cognate of Q. máma, and Fiona Jallings suggested ᴺS. *baw as a derivative of ✶mbāba, a primitive form that appeared on VT47/35. Both maw and baw have other meanings in Sindarin, however, so I prefer the somewhat contrived form bam since at least it does not collide with other attested words.
