ᴺS. [G.] ^tuilas n. “petal, (lit.) bud-leaf” (Category: Leaf)

ᴺS. [G.] ^tuilas, n. “petal, (lit.) bud-leaf” (Category: Leaf)
See G. tethlas for discussion.


N. tui “sprout, bud”
S. lass “leaf”

G. tethlas n. “petal, *(lit.) bud-leaf” (Category: Leaf)

A noun appearing as G. tethlas “petal” in the Gnomish Lexicon of the 1910s, a combination of G. teth “bud” and G. lass “leaf” (GL/70), the latter sometimes also used for “petal” according to Tolkien’s notes in the 1910s (GL/52).

Neo-Sindarin: For purposes of Neo-Sindarin, I would adapt this word as ᴺS. tuilas “petal” using the 1930s word [N.] tui “bud” instead of 1910s teth. However, I would use S. lass only for “leaf”, not “petal”.
