Hi Lúthien,

As I said in John's explanation there is a notion of "pleasure" if someone is over-fond of something. In kefkayer, the element "kef" is from the arabic kif or kiff (also written keif), a word that has entered the French slang with the meaning "pleasure, be fond of" and which gives:

le kiffeur m. noun a person taking intense pleasure in something
la kiffeuse f. noun same as above
kiffer verb take pleasure
le kiff m. noun intense pleasure

and if you ask me what the exact translation of a "Párendil" is, my answer is:

Un kiffeur ou une kiffeuse qui kiffe le plus grand kiff "des mots".

Ahhhhh I see. I get it.
But I was wondering if you put that association into the word consciously, when you first proposed it?

If anyone's still interested, might I suggest "talihoism" (yes, I know its an awful pun! S) )

Nice answer órerámar :)
I do enjoy reading what people come up with, but alas, I feel not competent enough for coming up with a convincing ethymology or even linguistical explanation... :dontknow:

Very good Oreramar! :D I had no idea there was so much to the word. What linguistic treasures we possess without knowing it. ;)
