ᴱQ. aurqila adj. “golden, sunlit” (Category: Sun)

⚠️ᴱQ. aurquila, adj. “golden, sunlit” (Category: Sun)
Q. laurëa “golden (of hue)”
ᴺQ. aurëa “sunny, sunlit; *daytime”

An adjectice meaning “golden, sunlit” in the Qenya Lexicon of the 1910s with variant forms aürqila and auriqilea (QL/33), apparently a combination of ᴱQ. aure “sunlight” and ᴱQ. qilea “hued”. The first variant aürqila is unusual in that it implies as vowels in hiatus rather than the usual diphthong [au̯]. The only other similar example is 5-syllable anaükante (PE12/27).
