ᴱQ. #matsile n. “bear” (Category: Bear)

⚠️ᴱQ. #matsilë, n. “bear” (Category: Bear)
ᴹQ. morco “bear”

A word appearing only as an element in the name ᴱQ. Oromatsile “Great Bear” from Early Noldorin Word-lists of the 1920s (PE13/149). It was a cognate of ᴱN. magli “bear” = “honey-eater”, and hence composed of the same elements: ᴱQ. mata- “eat” and ᴱQ. ile “honey”, where the s appeared because ti became tsi in Early Qenya, so that matile > matsile.
