Q. nár n. “fire (as an element)” (Category: Fire)

Q. nár, n. “fire (as an element); ⚠️[ᴹQ.] flame” (Category: Fire)
ᴱQ. nar “an odour, fragrance”
ᴱQ. velca “flame”

The basic Quenya word for “fire” derived from the root √NAR of the same meaning (PE17/29, 38), more specifically “fire as an element” or as a force or abstract concept (PE17/183), versus ruinë “a fire, a blaze” which is an individual fire or blaze in the physical world. In The Etymologies of the 1930s it appeared as ᴹQ. nár or náre “flame” derived from the root ᴹ√NAR¹ “flame, fire” (Ety/NAR¹).

Conceptual Development: The Qenya Lexicon of the 1910s had as a derivative of the root ᴱ√SAH(Y)A “be hot” the word ᴱQ. “Fire, especially in temples, etc. A mystic name identified with Holy Ghost” (QL/81), and this “mystic name” was also mentioned in the Poetic and Mythological Words of Eldarissa (PME/81). Thus it seems ᴱQ. was “mystic fire”, as opposed to ᴱQ. uru which was ordinary “fire” (QL/98).
