ᴱQ. nal (nald-) n. “dale, dell” (Category: Dale, Valley)
In the Qenya Lexicon of the 1910s there were a pair of similar nouns derived from the root ᴱ√NḶĐḶ: ᴱQ. nal (nald-) “dale, dell” and ᴱQ. nalle “dell” (QL/66). The latter was derived from ᴱ✶nḷdle and the former probably from *nḷd-. The word nalle also appeared unglossed in Early Qenya Word-lists from the 1920s (PE16/144).
