ᴺQ. !cemnassë n. “earthenware, pottery” (Category: Potter)

ᴺQ. !cemnassë, n. “earthenware, pottery” [created by Tamas Ferencz] (Category: Potter)
ᴺQ. !cennassë “pottery, ceramic vessel”

A neologism coined by Paul Strack in 2023 specifically for Eldamo, the Quenya equivalent of [N.] cevnas “earthenware”. Tamas Ferencz instead suggested ᴺQ. cennassë “pottery, ceramic vessel” but it doesn’t match the root form ᴹ√KEM. He also suggested ᴺQ. centánië “ceramics, pottery-craft” based on [ᴹQ.] kentano “potter”, this word is also problematic because ᴹQ. tano became tamo in Tolkien’s later writings.

ᴱQ. keres (kerest-) n. “earthenware” (Category: Potter)

A word appearing as ᴱQ. keres (kerest-) “earthenware” in the Qenya Lexicon of the 1910s under the early root ᴱ√KERE, with a shorter variant ᴱQ. kere that meant both “earthenware” and “earthen jar” (QL/46).

Neo-Quenya: For purposes of Neo-Quenya, I prefer ᴺQ. cemnassë “earthenware, pottery” as an adaptation of [N.] cevnas “earthenware” (EtyAC/KEM).
