A noun in The Etymologies of the 1930s given as ᴹQ. ringwe “cold pool or lake (in mountains)” derived from the root ᴹ√RINGI “cold” (Ety/RINGI; EtyAC/RINGI). In The Etymologies as published in The Lost Road the form was given as ringe (LR/383), but this was corrected to ringwe by Carl Hostetter and Patrick Wynne in their Addenda and Corrigenda to the Etymologies (VT46/11).
Conceptual Development: ᴱQ. ringwe was glossed “rime, frost” in the Qenya Lexicon of the 1910s under the early root ᴱ√RIŊI (QL/80). In Early Qenya Word-lists of the 1920s, ᴱQ. ringwe was a noun for “cold” (PE16/145).
