Notes

  1. Sinear·nóressë: Quenyarized Shinear in a construction after the attested "Elenna·nóressë."
  2. yuhtaneltë: "they used." "Yuhta-" is from the primitive root YUK, cognate with "Noldorin" "iuitho."
  3. morihimma: bitumen, that is, a black, sticky gum-like substance like asphalt that can, apparently, be used as mortar. It's a compound of "mori" + "himma," which is derived from himya-, to adhere, root KHIM. "Himma" is glue, or gum, or resin, in other words, any kind of sticky goop.
  4. telarhimma: mortar. "telar" (brick) + "himma" as above.
  5. Yehóva: Quenyarization of Hebrew "YHWH."
  6. úcárima: ú (not) + cár (root "car-," "to do") + ima (adjectival suffix meaning –able); impossible, not doable.
  7. Vável: Quenyarization of Babel.
