ᴹQ. kentano n. “potter” (Category: Potter)

⚠️ᴹQ. centano, n. “potter” (Category: Potter)
ᴹQ. cemnaro “potter”

A word for “potter” in The Etymologies of the 1930s under the root ᴹ√TAN “make, fashion” (Ety/TAN). The root ᴹ√KEM “soil, earth” instead had ᴹQ. kemnaro “potter”, with a line drawn from it to the forms ᴹQ. kentano and N. cennan in the margin, but both these marginal forms were deleted (EtyAC/KEM).

Neo-Quenya: For purposes of Neo-Quenya, I prefer ᴹQ. kemnaro “potter”, but if you wish to use kentano, you should update it to ᴺQ. centamo, since ᴹQ. tano > Q. tamo in Tolkien’s later writings; see those entries for details.
