Linquë súrisse is the Elvish name of a grass.[note 1]
The name likely means "grass in the wind". It has been suggested that the element linquë is related to Quenya linque ("grass, reed"). The second element would likely be related to súre.
- ↑ The name appears on unpublished drawings related to an illustration (fig. 196) by Tolkien depicting the grass; Hammond and Scull describes the physical appearance of the grass as a "bamboo-like plant".
