Q. parca adj. “naked (of persons)” (Category: Naked, Bare)
An adjective for “naked (of persons)” derived from √PAR “peel” appearing in notes from around 1959 (PE17/86).
Conceptual Development: There were a couple of similar words in the Qenya Lexicon of the 1910s: ᴱQ. falka “naked” and ᴱQ. falin “bare, nude, fallow” under the early root ᴱ√FALA “bare, nude” (QL/37). In the contemporaneous Poetic and Mythological Words of Eldarissa these words appeared as falka “naked, bare” and falin “bare, wild, of land” (PME/37).
Neo-Quenya: I would avoid these words for purposes of Neo-Quenya, using ᴹQ. helda “naked, stripped bare” instead. In the case of 1959 parca, it conflicts with 1930s ᴹQ. parka “dry”, and while we have number of options for “naked” words, there are not many good options for “dry”.
