N. tellen n. “sole of foot” (Category: Foot)

⚠️N. tellen, n. “sole of foot” (Category: Foot)
ᴺS. ^tellyn “sole of foot”

A noun in The Etymologies of the 1930s glossed “sole of foot” derived from primitive ᴹ✶talrunya, effectively a combination of N. tâl “foot” and N. rhein < ᴹ✶runya (Ety/RUN), where the a of tal- became e via i-affection, the ancient lr became ll, and the ei in rhein reduced to e as it often did in unstressed final syllables in Noldorin.

Neo-Sindarin: In Sindarin phonetics, the likely derivative of primitive ✶talrunya would be ᴺS. tellyn; compare S. eryn < ✶oronyē (PE17/119).
