G. fluim n. “(black) smoke, reek” (Category: Smoke)

⚠️G. fluim, n. “(black) smoke, reek” (Category: Smoke)
N. osp “smoke”

A noun in the Gnomish Lexicon of the 1910s glossed “(black) smoke, reek”, for which Tolkien said “compare to {ful- >>} fol-” (GL/35), which in my opinion is a reference its root form ᴱ√FOLO, but could also just be a reference to forms like G. foltha-, which itself had a reference back to fluim (GL/36).
