ᴺQ. [ᴱQ.] lávëar n. “glutton” (Category: to Eat)

ᴺQ. [ᴱQ.] lávëar, n. “glutton” (Category: to Eat)
See ᴱQ. lávear for discussion.


LAB “lick, move the tongue”
-ro “an old agental formation”

ᴱQ. lávear (láveard-) n. “glutton” (Category: to Eat)

A noun for “glutton” in the Qenya Lexicon of the 1910s derived from the early root ᴱ√LAVA “lick”, with a stem form of láveard- (QL/52).

Neo-Quenya: I think this word can be salvaged for purposes of Neo-Quenya as an atypical agental formation from the later version of the root: √LAB “lick”. If the final r is from the agental suffix ✶-ro however, it probably no longer has a specialized stem form.
