G. grosgen n. “soil” (Category: Ground, Soil)

⚠️G. grosgen, n. “soil” (Category: Ground, Soil)
N. cef “soil”

A noun in the Gnomish Lexicon of the 1910s glossed “soil”, a combination of G. groth “earth, soil” and suffixal G. -gen from the root ᴱ√KEME (GL/42). This root was glossed “soil” in the contemporaneous Qenya Lexicon (QL/46), so the actual meaning of this word seems to be something like “earthy soil”.
