Ilk. esg² n. “rustle, noise of leaves” (Category: Whisper)
A rejected noun meaning “rustle, noise of leaves” derived from the root ᴹ√EZGE (Ety/EZGE). Its (rejected) Quenya cognate ᴹQ. eske indicates a primitive form *✶eseke, despite the root form. If so, middle [e] was lost due to the Ilkorin syncope, and afterwards the [esk] became [esg].
