ᴱ√FAWA root. “smell”

⚠️ᴱ√FAWA root. “smell”
THAW “cruel; ⚠️stink”
ᴹ√NUS “sense, wisdom; *sense of smell”

A root in the Qenya Lexicon of the 1910s glossed “smell” along with several Qenya derivatives, most unglossed (QL/37). It seems this was a neutral “smell” root based on words in the contemporaneous Gnomish Lexicon, such as G. faust “smell, odour (neither pleasant nor unpleasant)” (GL/34). There are no signs of this root in Tolkien’s later writing.
