ᴹQ. poldore n. “*physical strength” (Category: Strong, Mighty, Powerful)

ᴹQ. poldorë, n. “[ᴱQ.] physical strength; ⚠️might” (Category: Strong, Mighty, Powerful)
ᴱQ. nertu “strength”

A word in The Etymologies of the 1930s that was a noun form of ᴹQ. polda “strong, burly” under the root ᴹ√POL(OD) “physically strong” (Ety/POL), so probably meaning something like “*physical strength”. There is a similar form ᴱQ. poldor in the Qenya Lexicon of the 1910s glossed “physical strength” under the early root ᴱ√POLO (QL/75); this 1910s word was glossed “might” in the contemporaneous Poetic and Mythological Words of Eldarissa. For purposes of Neo-Quenya, I’d use this word primarily for “physical strength”.
