ᴱQ. Neni Erúmear loc. “Outermost Waters”

⚠️ᴱQ. Neni Erúmëar, loc. “Outermost Waters”

Ocean surrounding Middle-earth in a very early map, translated by Christopher Tolkien as “Outermost Waters” (LT1/84-5), a combination of the plural of nen¹ “water” and the plural of erúmea “outermost”. The form Neni Erùmear appearing on LT1/84-85 is what Tolkien original wrote, with Erúmëar in the indices being an editorial revision.
