Early Quenya


noun. palm tree

A word appearing as ᴱQ. paltyalda “palm tree” in the Poetic and Mythological Words of Eldarissa of the 1910s, a combination of ᴱQ. paltya “flat of hand, palm of hand” and ᴱQ. alda “tree” (PME/74).

Neo-Quenya: Since palta is “flat of the hand, ✱palm” in Tolkien’s later writings, I would update this word to ᴺQ. paltalda “palm tree”.
