onotinwa, onotinwa, *luntanwa, kirinwa

- is this a fair translation of mene mene tekel upharsin?

- there is a Gnomish verb luntha- 'balance, weigh' which might imply a similar derivation from LUG in Q, or would it be *lúta- with G > 3 > ' and lengthening of the sundoma?

An alternative idea for expressing "to weigh sth" (one that is useful in some other context) : ecces-/*lesta- *lung(i)ë +Genitive
