Q. ?elp- v. “to anoint” (Category: Oil)

⚠️Q. ?elp-, v. “to anoint” (Category: Oil)
ᴺQ. !liv- “to anoint”

An element in a (rejected) translation of “Christ” in Quenya prayers of the 1950s: Elpino (VT44/15). It might mean “anoint” as suggested by Wynne, Smith and Hostetter as a derivative of √LIP “oil”, but this is rather speculative.

Neo-Quenya: For purposes of Neo-Quenya I prefer Helge Fauskanger’s neologism ᴺQ. liv- for “to anoint”, derived from ᴹ√(G)LIB.
