ᴱQ. suni n. “bitch, *female dog” (Category: Dog)

⚠️ᴱQ. suni, n. “bitch, *female dog” (Category: Dog)
ᴺQ. ^húni “bitch, *female dog”

ᴱQ. suni “bitch” appeared in the Qenya Lexicon of the 1910s derived from ᴱ✶sẇǝnī́ under the early root ᴱ√SAẆA < sǝwǝ (QL/82). This word also appeared in the Qenya Phonology with a similar derivation (PE12/26), and appeared again in the Poetic and Mythological Words of Eldarissa (PME/82).

Neo-Quenya: For purposes of Neo-Quenya, I’d update this word to ᴺQ. húni “bitch, *female dog” using the later root ᴹ√KHUG that seems to have replaced ᴱ√SAẆA (Ety/KHUGAN).
