Early Quenya


noun. wrap, robe

A noun appearing as ᴱQ. vaima “wrap, robe” in the Qenya Lexicon of the 1910s under the early root ᴱ√VAẎA “enfold, wind about” (QL/100).

Neo-Quenya: Since ᴹ√WAY “enfold” appears in The Etymologies of the 1930s (Ety/WAY), I would retain ᴺQ. vaima “wrap, robe” for purposes of Neo-Quenya, used of very simple clothing.
