ᴱQ. qinqa adj. “drooping, languid” (Category: Tired, Weary)

A word appearing as ᴱQ. qinqa “drooping, languid” in the Qenya Lexicon of the 1910s under the early root ᴱ√QIQI (QL/77).

Neo-Quenya: For purposes of Neo-Quenya I’d retain this word as ᴺQ. quinqua based on a Neo-Root ᴺ√KWIK(W), but only with the sense “languid”; for “drooping” I’d use later nimpa. I’d use also quinqua for “*lazy” but not necessarily in a negative sense, so also meaning “*relaxed”.
