Vomentie

Revision as of 01:39, 14 January 2011 by Mithbot (Talk | contribs)

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 vo- and possibly it comes from PQ *wômentiê.
