N. chwinn n. “eddy” (Category: Whirlpool)
A noun in The Etymologies of the 1930s appearing as N. chwinn “eddy, whirlpool” and derived from the root ᴹ√SWIN “whirl, eddy” (Ety/SWIN). Christopher Tolkien marked it as an “adj.” in The Etymologies as published in The Lost Road, but this was a misreading of the gloss “eddy” as reported by Carl Hostetter and Patrick Wynne (EtyAC/SWIN). If adapted to Neo-Sindarin, this word would become ᴺS. hwind, as suggested in Hiswelókë’s Sindarin Dictionary (HSD).
