Orne

Revision as of 13:55, 14 July 2011 by Morgan (Talk | contribs)

orne is a noun meaning "tree" in Quenya, especially a tall, slender tree such as an ash or birch. Compare with orn in Sindarin.[1]

Helge Fauskanger has suggested that the form ornë (retaining the same meaning) could be valid Neo-Quenya.[2]
