ᴱQ. taran (taramb-) n. “bang, buffet” (Category: to Hit, Strike, Beat)

A noun appearing as ᴱQ. taran (taramb-) or tarambo “a bang, buffet” in the Qenya Lexicon of the 1910s as a derivative of the early root given as ᴱ√TARA(MA) “batter, thud, beat”, but actually ᴱ√DARA(MA) based on its Gnomish forms (QL/89); in Early Qenya, primitive initial d became t (PE12/17).

Neo-Quenya: The root ᴹ√DARAM “beat, hew” survived into The Etymologies of the 1930s, so ᴱQ. tarambo (< *darambō) may be salvageable in Neo-Quenya. In later Quenya phonology, initial primitive d usually became l, but I think in this case it would assimilate as n to the following nasal, aided by the similar root ᴹ√(N)DAM “hammer, beat”, so I would suggest ᴺQ. narambo “bang, buffet”.
