+Tamas Ferencz preliminary attempt of "actors" based on Middle English? etymology of actor << "doer". I changed it even before your comment to *cardamaitari "deed artist". Other ideas quite welcome. :)

+Robert Reynolds oh I see. If 'actor, doer' is what you are after then there is an attested word for that, tyaro.
BTW the noun remains singular before atta.

One should be cautious with Early Qenya material, but the verb sesta- “to liken, compare, make like, model on, assimilate, imitate” looks like one that could possibly be adopted into NeoQuenya, and could be the basis of a noun like *sestar "imitator, mime, actor". Or, if we say that in the later incarnation of the language the concept of similarity/likeness is based on the preposition ve (cf. véla, vea) hypothetically a verb could be formed from it (*véya-?) cf. other verbs based on prepositions like unta., núta, anya etc.). Bt this is just speculation.

+Tamas Ferencz These are all interesting ideas and helpful tips. This feels like a good example of Quenya Chat about non-Tolkien (*alatolkienya? lol) topics revealing good questions about NeoQuenya as a general purpose language.
