ᴱQ. mear (mearn-) n. “gore, blood” (Category: Blood)

⚠️ᴱQ. mëar (mëarn-), n. “gore, blood” (Category: Blood)
ᴺQ. ^mehar “gore”

A noun appearing as ᴱQ. mear “gore” in the Qenya Lexicon of the 1910s under the early root ᴱ√MEHE “ooze‽”, with stem forms mearn- or meas- (QL/60). The H in the root represents voiceless velar spirant χ, which was voiced to ɣ and then vanished between vowels in Early Qenya (PE12/18).

Neo-Quenya: I would adapt this word as ᴺQ. mehar “gore” for purposes of Neo-Quenya since the voicing of medial χ did not occur in later Quenya. I would assume it is derived from a Neo-Root ᴺ√MEKH of similar meaning, perhaps from primitive *mekhar or *mekhār.
