Q. vaire adj. “?wavy” (Category: Wave, Surge)

⚠️Q. vairë, adj. “?wavy” (Category: Wave, Surge)
Q. falma “(crested or foaming) wave, breaker; ⚠️[ᴱQ.] foam”

A word (adjective?) in Quenya Notes from 1957 (QN) derived from √WAYA “blow” whose gloss is unclear, perhaps “wavy[?] not of fluid[?] but locks[?]” as suggested by Christopher Gilson (PE17/34). Giving the uncertainty of this word’s meaning, I’d avoid using it in Neo-Quenya writings.
