Q. findessë n. “head of hair, person’s hair as a whole” (Category: Hair)

Q. findessë, n. “head of hair, person’s hair as a whole” (Category: Hair)

A word for “a head of hair, a person’s hair as a whole” appearing in the The Shibboleth of Fëanor from 1968 (PM/345). In notes from 1965 Tolkien instead gave Q. findilë for “head of hair” (PE17/17). I would use the 1968 word findessë for purposes of Neo-Quenya; see the entry for findë for more suggestions on the application (Neo) Quenya hair words.
