S. ylf n. “drinking-vessel, *cup” (Category: Cup)

S. ylf, n. “drinking-vessel, *cup” (Category: Cup)

A word for a “drinking-vessel” appearing in the Quendi and Eldar essay from 1959-60 as a derivative of ✶julmā [yulmā] = √YUL + ✶-mā “*thing for drinking” (WJ/416), where the final lm became lf (pronounced [lv]). It was cognate to Q. yulma, and hence probably also means “*cup”.
