ᴹQ. ungo n. “cloud, dark shadow” (Category: Cloud, Mirk)

⚠️ᴹQ. ungo, n. “cloud, dark shadow” (Category: Cloud, Mirk)
Q. lumbo “cloud, [ᴱQ.] dark lowering cloud; [Q.] gloom, dark, shade”

A noun in The Etymologies of the 1930s glossed “cloud, dark shadow” derived from the root ᴹ√UÑG (Ety/UÑG) and serving as the initial element in ᴹQ. Ungoliante “Gloomweaver” (LR/230). In later writings, √UÑG referred to spiders instead (LotR/1122; PE22/160), so this word was probably abandoned.
