Q: How do we say “Chaos” in Quenya?

A: “Avacúma”

L: “Void

Analysis

  • Avacúma = n. the Void, exterior void beyond the World.
  • OBS.: Such a small word and such a complex rendition! First of all, there is no word for chaos in Quenya. I tried some synonym construction like “disorder, mess, confusion” but there’s none! The only thing attested is rúcina but it’s an adjective and when stripping that word from the suffix -ina we get an easily confusing word rucië (meaning fear, horror). Well, as last resort, I went for etymology of “chaos” and found out that the Greek word simply meant “abyss, that which gapes wide open, is vast and empty”. The theological use of chaos to refer to the void at the beginning of creation gradually extended the meaning to what we have today “utter confusion”.
