ᴱQ. mulda adj. “powdery” (Category: Dust, Powder)

A word with variant forms ᴱQ. mulda and mulina and the gloss “powdery” from the Qenya Lexicon of the 1910s, an adjectival form of ᴱQ. mul (muld-) “fine powder”, ultimately derived from the early root ᴱ√MULU “grind (fine)” (QL/63).

Neo-Quenya: In notes from the late 1950s or early 1960s, Tolkien gave Q. mulë for “meal” = “*coarsely ground flour”, so it seems *√MUL “grind” either survived or was restored. This may make it possible to retain ᴺQ. mulda “powdery” for purposes of Neo-Eldarin as descriptive of ground up things.
