Early Quenya

vea falastane

the sea surging

The ninth line of the Oilima Markirya poem (MC/213). The first word is vea “sea”, followed by the “bare stem” infinitive of the verb falasta- “to surge” as suggested by Gilson, Welden, and Hostetter (PE16/84, notes on line #10 and #11), apparently functioning as either an active-participle or a verbal object.

Decomposition: Broken into its constituent elements, this phrase would be:

> vea falasta-ne = “✱sea surg-ing”
