N. lhorn² adj. “asleep”

⚠️N. lhorn², adj. “asleep”
ᴺS. ^lorn “asleep”

An adjective appearing as N. lhorn “asleep” in The Etymologies of the 1930s, cognate to ᴹQ. lorna, derived from the root ᴹ√LOR “sleep” (EtyAC/LOS). Tolkien deleted this form when he revised the root to ᴹ√LOS.

Neo-Sindarin: I’d restore this word as ᴺS. lorn “asleep”, since I retain the connection between the root √LOR and sleep; see the entry on √(O)LOR for further discussion.
