I am looking for some good NeoQuenya solutions for
. Any brainstorming welcome.

(TOL-) "sticking up, upright"?

"Horizontal" should be conveyable via a translation of "from left to right" (or vice versa), similar to
. If the wordhoard permitted one to translate "side-directional", that might work too, vs. "shore-" or "ground-directional" (cp. Welsh
) & Q
"flat, level" / anything further from DAL/LAD, PAL.

Yes, I was musing about
myself, although 'flat' is not exactly the same as 'horizontal'.

At the Omentielva in Helsinki we were shown some unpublished notes from the Bodleian by Beregond. There was a Namárie draft with a cryptic
written in Tengwar above some lines. I got a hunch that this means *'lying -> horizontal', though it's a complete stab in the dark, of course; and I don't know how it would relate to the text.

resembles a noun, but especially from a creational viewpoint is not that different from the adjectival suffix
. Supplemental analogy-based derivation applied to KAY should also allow *
(plus possibly *
) as a root-sense adjective "lying (down) [horizontally]" without the Etym:363 allusion to ailment. (*
would precisely mean "laid-down".)

as an adjectival suffix is attested in
'renewed' < KEWE.
