Q. alanessë n. “nicotiana, pipeweed” (Category: Tobacco)
A Quenya word appearing in notes on Words, Phrases and Passages in the Lord of the Rings from the late 1950s or early 1960s as alenesse or alanesse “nicotiana, pipeweed [*tobacco]”, assembled from ala- “plant, grow” and (primitive?) ✶nes- “sweet smelling” (PE17/100). I prefer alanesse as it is more compatible with the etymology Tolkien gave for S. galenas “pipeweed”.
