1.56 Noise, Thunder

ᴱQ. fundu- vb. “?to thunder”

An unglossed verb form ᴱQ. fundu- or funduna- appearing drafts of the Oilima Markirya from around 1930, appearing only in inflected forms like funduváre (future) or fundunár (PE16/57, 60). Gilson, Welden and Hostetter suggest that it might have been an onomatopoeic verb meaning “pound” or “thunder”.
