I don't get it... Not a single word for 'back' (a part of body) in any language since Leeds? And none for 'stomach' ever?

Could one make something from that? - Eldamo : Early Quenya : famba

Paul Strack Aug 27, 2017 (15:15)

The early root FAVA could be updated to a later root *PHAB and still produce the same results.

Александр Запрягаев Aug 27, 2017 (15:18)

That's a root with implications of 'fat belly'. A neutral stomach does not hide in this root.

Paul Strack Aug 27, 2017 (15:26)

Then maybe do something based off Early Noldorin girth "entrails" - Eldamo : Early Noldorin : girdh

This is from primitive ʒirdǝ, so perhaps Q. hirde in Tolkien later phonetic scheme.

You'll probably need to come up with some kennings for these.

+Tamas Ferencz Well, stomach is simpler: after all, we have quite a selection for breast.

Tamas Ferencz Aug 28, 2017 (14:00)

+Александр Запрягаев I was thinking of coining something like *tiuma "pouch, blaďder, bag, stomach" from TIW.

+James Coish good catch!

Paul Strack Aug 29, 2017 (17:17)

+James Coish Oh yes, kumba "bellied" probably comes from the root KUM "void", so it has a good etymology as well.

James Coish Aug 29, 2017 (17:23)

Also to keep the "fat" meaning, could come from CUB bow, mound. Haha.

I actually thought about some stuff from PE21 or similar. What do you think about the one-off '*opto* back' from PE22:050?

James Coish Aug 30, 2017 (18:25)

Since it is a noun, I would say *opto is a good choice.
