Q. hrissë n. “fall of snow” (Category: Snow)

Q. hrissë, n. “fall of snow” (Category: Snow)

A word for “fall of snow” appearing beside deleted {hritse “fall”} in notes from around 1959, derived from the root √SRIS “snow” (PE17/168). Note that this word is for a “snow fall”, basically a noun form of the verb †hríza “it is snowing” (ᴺQ. hrísa). The word for the “snow” itself, especially after it is already fallen, is lossë.
