ᴺS. !best n. “marriage, matrimony, wedlock, ⚠️wedding” (Category: Wedding, Marriage)

ᴺS. !best, n. “marriage, matrimony, wedlock, ⚠️wedding” [created by Fiona Jallings] (Category: Wedding, Marriage)

A neologism coined by Fiona Jallings in the VinQuettaParma Wiki (VQP), the equivalent of ᴹQ. vesta “matrimony”. Fiona proposed that this word could meaning either “marriage” or “wedding”, but I prefer ᴺS. bestad for “wedding” and would reserve ᴺS. best for “marriage, matrimony, wedlock” = “the state of marriage”.

ᴱN. gwedhw n. “matrimony” (Category: Wedding, Marriage)

A noun in Early Noldorin Word-lists of the 1920s for “matrimony” based on the 1920s root for marriage words: ᴱ√wed- (PE13/146). In the Gnomish Lexicon of the 1910s there was an archaic word G. †bedhwen for “matrimony”, a combination of the 1910s version of the root ᴱ√Beđ- with the noun suffix G. -wen (GL/22). It had a longer (non-archaic) variant G. govedhwen with the prefix G. go- “together”.
