Early Quenya


noun. wild dog, jackal

ᴱQ. savar “wild dog, jackal” appeared in the Qenya Lexicon of the 1910s under the early root ᴱ√SAẆA (QL/82). This word also appeared with the gloss “wild dog” in the Poetic and Mythological Words of Eldarissa (PME/82).

Neo-Quenya: For purposes of Neo-Quenya, I’d update this word to ᴺQ. huar “wild dog, jackal” using the later root ᴹ√KHUG that seems to have replaced ᴱ√SAẆA (Ety/KHUGAN).
