ᴺS. [ᴱN.] faus(t) n. “thirst” (Category: Thirst)
ᴱN. faus n. “thirst” (Category: Thirsty)
A word appearing as ᴱN. faus “thirst” in Early Noldorin Wordlists of the 1920s, a noun form of better known faug “thirsty”.
Conceptual Development: In the Gnomish Lexicon of the 1910s Tolkien had G. luist “thirst” and variant luibri (GL/55) clearly from the early root ᴱ√LOYO (QL/56). He also had G. maig “thirst” with longer variant maiglos (GL/56), the latter appearing in ᴱN. Dor-na-Maiglos (LB/49), the earliest name for S. Dor-nu-Fauglith.
Neo-Sindarin: For purposes of Neo-Sindarin, I would adapt the Early Noldorin form as ᴺS. faus(t); compare to [N.] haust “bed” (Ety/KHAW).
