G. gwadhra adj. “habitable” (Category: to Live, Dwell)

⚠️G. gwadhra, adj. “habitable” (Category: to Live, Dwell)
ᴺS. !bardhor “habitable”

An adjective appearing as G. gwadhra “habitable” in the Gnomish Lexicon of the 1910s derived from the early root ᴱ√ŋwa[ð]- (GL/47).

Neo-Sindarin: Tolkien abandoned this early root, so I would adapt this word as ᴺS. bardhor “habitable” based on S. bardh “home” (PE17/164).
