kópa

(Redirected from Kopa)

kópa is a Qenya word.[1]

In the Qenya Lexicon, kópa is glossed as "harbour" (derived from the root KOPO "keep, guard").[2] In the Gnomish Lexicon appears kôpa/kôpas, Qenya cognates of Gnomish gobos "haven".[3] In the Etymologies appears kópa ("harbour, bay"), derived from the root KOP (which, however, was struck out and amended to hópa "haven, harbour, small landlocked bay", from root KHOP).[4]
