G. fafli n. “bladder” (Category: to Urinate; Urine)

⚠️G. fafli, n. “bladder” (Category: to Urinate; Urine)
ᴺS. !faul¹ “bladder, (orig.) inflated thing”

A noun appearing as G. fafli “a bladder” in the Gnomish Lexicon of the 1910s, an elaboration of G. faf- “puff, blow” (GL/33).

Neo-Sindarin: I would adapt this word as ᴺS. faul “bladder” from ᴺS. faw- “puff, blow”, likely with the original sense “inflated thing”. This mirrors the etymology of English “bladder”, which is also derived from an ancient verb meaning “to blow”.
