G. polod n. “power, might, authority” (Category: Strong, Mighty, Powerful)

A noun appearing as G. polod “power, might, authority” in the Gnomish Lexicon of the 1910s, clearly based on the early root ᴱ√POLO “have stength” (GL/64).

Neo-Sindarin: Since ᴹ√POL(OD) still had to do with “strength” in Tolkien’s later writings, I’d adapt this word as ᴺS. polodh “power, might, authority”, and assume some amount of semantic drift from physical strength to political authority.
