Early Quenya


noun. ulcer, sore, boil

A noun appearing as ᴱQ. sist “ulcer, sore” in the Qenya Lexicon of the 1910s under the early root ᴱ√SṢTYṢ (QL/86). In the Early Qenya Phonology it was siste “ulcer, boil” from primitive ᴱ✶sṣtē (PE12/14).

Neo-Quenya: I’d retain ᴺQ. sistë “ulcer, sore, boil” for purposes of Neo-Quenya based on a Neo-Root ᴺ√SISTI.
