ᴱQ. kemi n. “earth, soil, land” (Category: Earth, Land)

⚠️ᴱQ. cemi, n. “earth, soil, land” (Category: Earth, Land)
Q. cemen “the earth; earth, [ᴹQ.] soil”

An Early Qenya word derived from the root ᴱ√KEME and translated “earth, soil, land” in the Qenya Lexicon of the 1910s (QL/46) and as “earth, soil” in Poetic and Mythological Words of Eldarissa from this same period (PME/46). While this form and derivation are compatible with Tolkien later notions of the Elvish languages, I think it is better to use the later terms cemen for “earth, soil” and nór for “land”.
