G. cwim adj. “awake, alert, alive” (Category: to Wake)

⚠️G. cwim, adj. “awake, alert, alive” (Category: to Wake)
ᴺS. ^cui(w) “awake, alert, ⚠️alive”

An adjective appearing as G. cwim “awake, alert, alive” in the Gnomish Lexicon of the 1910s from the early root ᴱ√QIV (GL/28).

Neo-Sindarin: I would adapt this word as ᴺS. cui(w) “awake, alert” for purposes of Neo-Sindarin, inspired by the second element of S. echui(w) “awakening”, but for “alive” I’d use [N.] cuin.
