I've proposed this neologism over on FB in the Quenya Chat group; would like your opinions, too:
'difficulty, trouble', modeled on
'necessity' from STAG-, cf, also

Its a good logical choice. I noticed that hranga also has a connotation of awkward. Urda / urdie would make an equally good choice as a synonym for difficulty. But without the sense of awkward. Could hrangie be used as awkwardness?

I don't know if
can be derived as such from the root (I don't have PE17 with me now, can't check); I like
because it seems to have an analogue.

It would depend on whether we have other examples of a noun in
being formed from an adjective with suffix
), or if it would be something like *
in VT46:3 and
in Etym., though both are from the 1930s.
seems good to me, though it would have to be an editorial choice to go with
(etc.) meaning "difficult" instead of "easy," like Tolkien's other waffling with
"yes" / "no",
"yesterday" / "tomorrow", etc.

looks like an abstract formed from an adjective, and I cannot recall any examples of that happening; but of course I may be totally wrong.
is a good alternative.

is for instance clearly derived from the adjective
rather than the root MOR-, so...

ah, quite true. So then
is not inconceivable. I stand corrected.
