Cein doesn't have initial |g| except when mutated, and it
doesn't have final |l|, only |ll|, so the closest to |gol|
we get is |coll| which means 'cloak'.
The famous first line in the poem "Rhats·a·ddel" is |coll o
fenel| "heaven's cloak". If we turn that around we get
|menel o goll| "cloak's heaven" (which doesn't make much
sense, at least not in that poem).
No |sop| so far, unfortunately. No |sop| or |gol| in Seimi
or Rinya either.
