G. mar n. “Earth, ground, soil” (Category: Earth, Land)

⚠️G. mar, n. “Earth, ground, soil” (Category: Earth, Land)
S. ceven “*earth; Earth”

A word in the Gnomish Lexicon of the 1910s glossed “Earth, ground, soil”, apparently derived from the root ᴱ√mar- (GL/56). Tolkien also had G. Môr “the Earth”, so perhaps mar mainly meant “earth” in the more ordinary senses. For purposes of Neo-Eldarin, I’d use later S. ceven for “earth”.
