I think of adding my reconstruction *ŷ from MQ io, "wine". from MQ io, "wine" to the VQP. I feel a bit insecure about it since the only place I've seen

would yield *
if the common eldarin root was *√IU/JU. That, however, I don't know.

was assigned the meaning 'butter' (see below) and replaced here by
, which in turn was emended to

'a kind of wine'.]" (PE16:141)

The editors of the 'Word-Lists' were Wynne and Gilson alone, as the contents table shows. Curiously, there are two word for 'butter' in the 'Food' list,
, separated only by nine glosses and seemingly written together. A replacement (though he normally crosses old ones out) or a Tolkien's error? These lists are an enjoyable read.

Eep, I'll fix that. I had looked at the end of Acknowledgements instead of the actual Table of Contents.
