S. tawen adj. “wood (of material), ?wooden (of make)” (Category: Wood, Timber)

S. tawen, adj. “wood (of material), wooden (of make)” (Category: Wood, Timber)

A word in a list of “large & small” roots from around 1968, apparently an adjectival form of taw “wood as material” (PE17/115). Its gloss is unclear but may be “wood (of material)” or “wooden (of make)” as suggested by Christopher Gilson. It appeared beside a form tewin, either a plural or (less likely) a variant form.

Conceptual Development: In The Etymologies of the 1930s the form was N. tawaren “wooden” (pl. tewerin), an adjectival form of longer N. tawar (Ety/TÁWAR).
