      In Sindarin, there is _ aníra ‘(he) desires’ (IX:128–29), perhaps more
      literally _a-níra_ *'(he) greatly desires' (cf. _níra_ n. ‘will, as a
      potential or faculty’, VT39:30; though it is possible that it is
      instead _an-íra_, with the same literal meaning; cf. the base ID- ‘heart,
      desire, wish’, V:361).
