vomentie is Telerin for "meeting (of two)", cognate of the Quenya omentië

It is only attested with a pronominal ending inflected for genitive: vomentienguo "of our meeting"[1]

Etymology

The word contains the prefix vó-; from this we can isolate mentie, looks like the gerund of a verb *menta-, perhaps from the stem MEN "go" Cite error: Closing </ref> missing for <ref> tag
