G. blectha n. “a flame” (Category: Flame)

⚠️G. blectha, n. “a flame” (Category: Flame)
S. lach “(leaping) flame”

A noun in the Gnomish Lexicon of the 1910s glossed “a flame” derived from the early root ᴱ√(M)BELEKE (GL/22). Tolkien marked this word as “Q”, but the editors pointed out this is almost certainly a slip for “G”.
