More

Revision as of 20:03, 9 June 2011 by Morgan (Talk | contribs)

more is a Quenya word meaning "dark(ness)".[1]

more also perhaps have the same meaning in Telerin.[source?]

It is seen as mori- in compounds (see etymology below).

Etymology

Primitive Quendian mori (the short final i becoming e in Common Eldarin stage)Template:Or Root MOR.[1]

From primitive mori, the i remains so in compounds: morequendi is wrong because *morikwendî > moriquendi.Template:Or
