G. mavlantos n. “sycamore” (Category: Tree (other))

A word appearing as G. mavlantos “sycamore” in the Gnomish Lexicon of the 1910s, apparently a blending of G. mavlant “palm” and G. blantos “sycamore” (GL/23, 55). This word likely refers to the sycamore’s flat and palm-like leaves.

Neo-Sindarin: For purposes of Neo-Sindarin I would adapt this word as ᴺS. mablanthos, a noun formation based on mâb and [ᴺS.] plant “flat”.
