Ilk. lind adj. and n. “tuneful, sweet; *singing” (Category: to Sing)
An adjective meaning “tuneful, sweet” developed from primitive ᴹ✶lindā (Ety/LIND, EtyAC/LIND). It is an example of how the usual Ilkorin a-affection was prevented or reverted before [nd], as suggested by Helge Fauskanger (AL-Ilkorin/lind). This word may also have had the sense “*singing” in the word myrilind “nightingale = *night singing”, from primitive ᴹ✶lindē.
