G. gwindod n. “elder tree; elderberry” (Category: Tree (other))

⚠️G. gwindod, n. “elder tree; elderberry” (Category: Tree (other))
ᴺS. ^gwennod “elder tree; elderberry, *(lit.) maiden berry”

A word appearing as G. gwindod “elder tree; elderberry” in the Gnomish Lexicon of the 1910s, a combination of G. gwin “woman” and G. dod “berry”, hence more literally “*woman berry” (GL/45).

Neo-Sindarin: For purposes of Neo-Sindarin, I would update this word to ᴺS. gwennod “elder tree; elderberry, *(lit.) maiden berry” using the later word S. gwend “maiden”.
