nestegi

From Tolkien Gateway

nestegi is an Exilic Noldorin word meaning "insert, stick in". The past tense is said to be nestanc.[1]

Didier Willis has suggested that nestag- (retaining the same meaning) would be the valid Neo-Sindarin form of the infinitive verb nestegi.[2]

Etymology

The word derives from Old Noldorin nestak- ("insert, stick in"), from root STAK.[1]
