ᴹ√SLIN root. “*fine, delicate”

ᴹ√SLIN root. “*fine, delicate”

An unglossed root in The Etymologies of the 1930s, with derivatives like ᴹQ. linda “fair” (blended with ᴹ√LIN² “sing”) and N. thlinn “fine, slender” (Ety/SLIN). It is probably a later iteration of the unglossed root ᴱ√SḶŘḶ (true form ᴱ√ÞḶÐḶ given in parenthesis) from the Qenya Lexicon of the 1910s with derivatives like ᴱQ. silda “slender” (QL/84). The connection is made more obvious by derivatives in the contemporaneous Gnomish Lexicon such as G. flidhra/thlidhra “willowy, graceful” and G. thlind “fine, slender” (GL/73).
