Early Primitive Elvish


root. *belt, girdle

An unglossed root in the Qenya Lexicon of the 1910s with derivatives like ᴱQ. qalta “girdled, girt” and ᴱQ. qilta “belt, girdle” (QL/78).

Neo-Eldarin: I think it worth positing a Neo-Eldarin root ᴺ√KWILIT “belt, girdle” to preserve some of these Early Qenya words.


  • Eq. qilta “belt, girdle” ✧ QL/078
  • Eq. qilti- “to gird, encircle” ✧ QL/078
