Revision as of 18:30, 12 November 2011 by Mithbot (Talk | contribs)

nwalme is a Quenya noun meaning "torment". Its older form is said to be ngwalme.[1]

Helge Fauskanger has suggested that the forms nwalmë/ngwalmë (retaining the same meaning) could be valid Neo-Quenya.[2]

Nwalme.gif nwalme is also the name of the twentieth letter of the Tengwar alphabet.[1]
