Ice, in J.R.R. Tolkien's words

The Quenya word for ice is helcë.

The Sindarin word for ice is heleg.

Ice was a surprisingly straightforward word to translate. I'm used to finding multiple words in Quenya and Sindarin, with different shades of meaning, for English words. Maybe I should look at more words to talk about the weather.
