Q. Alalvinórë loc. “Land of Many Elms”
A name appearing only on PE17/153, probably a later version of ᴱQ. Alalminóre, though this place had not appeared in Tolkien’s stories for many years. The status of this location in later stages of the Legendarium is unknown. It is a compound of alalvëa “having many elms” and nórë “land”.
Conceptual Development: In these late notes, this name was first written as alalmi-nóre, identical in form to the Early Quenya name. This form was deleted and replaced by alalbinóre. Later still, the form alalvinore was written nearby in ballpoint (the omission of the accent over the ó probably an oversight).
