ocamnar is a Quenya word meaning "diphthong".
It is not know if it is the singular or the plural. If it is the plural, the singular is *ocamna. If it is the singular, the plural would be *ocamnari.
The word comes from a possible PQ Root *KAM and contains the prefix o-.
An earlier version of the word is osamnar/samnar from a root SAM. Since Tolkien updated the word, that root would also retroactively be *KAM.
