G. gochest n. “brother and brother, brother and sister, etc.” (Category: Sibling)

A word appearing as G. gochest in the Gnomish Lexicon of the 1910s as a collective term for a pair (or set?) of siblings, a combination of G. go- “together” and hest “brother or sister” (GL/40, 49). It has a variant and “more correct” form gwachest (GL/43).

Neo-Sindarin: For purposes of Neo-Sindarin, I would retain the word ᴺS. gochest based on the word ᴺS. hest “sibling”.
