ᴱQ. qorin adj. “drowned, choked, speechless” (Category: to Breathe; Breath)

An adjective appearing as ᴱQ. qorin “drowned, choked, speechless” in the Qenya Lexicon of the 1910s based on the early root ᴱ√QOŘO [QOÐO], with an archaic sense equivalent to ᴱQ. qalin “dead” (QL/78).

Neo-Quenya: I would retain this word as ᴺQ. quorin “drowned, choked, speechless” for purposes of Neo-Quenya as a derivative of the Neo-Root ᴺ√KWOD, but some Neo-Quenya writers reject this word under the assumption that the combination quo- is not possible in Quenya; see the entry on how [wo] became [o] for further discussion.
