Q. vinimo [w], n. “baby, little-one” (Category: Infant)
ᴱQ. putsë “baby, child”
ᴹQ. tet(ta) “baby”
ᴱQ. tyetl “babe, a tiny baby”
Q. hinyë “baby”

A word appearing as winimo “baby” (VT47/10) or “little-one, baby” (VT48/6) in notes associated with Elvish Hands, Fingers and Numerals from the late 1960s, in one place with the variant win(i)ke (VT48/6). It was an elaboration of winë (wini-) of similar meaning. Tolkien said that “Pengoloð gives these in archaic Quenya form before the change of w, in most situations to v” (VT48/6), so the modern spelling and pronunciation of this word would be vinimo.
