Doriathrin

* neld

cardinal. three

The Doriathrin number “three” attested only as an element in the word neldor “beech” = “three trunks” (Ety/NEL). Its cognates ᴹQ. nelde and N. neledh indicates a primitive form *✶neledē, which would have become Ilk. neld due to the Ilkorin syncope, as suggested by Helge Fauskanger (AL-Doriathrin/neldor).
