REPOSE

Estë (the name of a Valië; because of this name, estë fell out of use as a general word for "repose"). According to VT46:12, Tolkien also considered erdë as a word for "repose", but he marked it with an X, possibly indicating that he considered abandoning this word because it clashed with erdë "seed, germ". Because of its uncertain status, writers should probably avoid erdë "repose". –WJ:403, 404
