Early Noldorin


adjective. houseless

A word for “houseless” in Early Noldorin Word-lists of the 1920s, a combination of ᴱN. bâr (mbar-) “house” with the privative prefix ᴱN. or-, replacing a deleted variant urmar (PE13/156).

Conceptual Development: The Gnomish Lexicon of the 1910s instead had G. baravlid “homeless”, a combination of G. bara “home” and the suffix G. -(a)vlid “less” (GL/23).
