ᴺS. [N.] ^gaeruil n. “seaweed” (Category: Vegetation (other))

ᴺS. [N.] ^gaeruil, n. “seaweed” [vetted by HSD] (Category: Vegetation (other))
See N. oeruil for discussion.


S. gaear “sea”
N. uil “seaweed”

N. oeruil n. “seaweed” (Category: Vegetation (other))

The Etymologies of the 1930s had N. uil “seaweed” under the root ᴹ√UY, along with a longer form N. oeruil “seaweed” where the initial element was N. oer “sea” (Ety/UY).

Neo-Sindarin: In Tolkien’s later writings, the word for “sea” was typically gaear (or gaer in compounds), so I would update the longer form to ᴺS. gaeruil for purposes of Neo-Sindarin, as suggested in Hiswelókë’s Sindarin Dictionary (HSD).
