Q. carda, n. “deed”
Conceptual Development: Perhaps the earliest precursor of this word is ᴱQ. karma “shape, fashion; act, deed” in the Qenya Lexicon from the 1910s of similar derivation (QL/45). In the Etymologies from the 1930s, the word appeared as ᴹQ. kar² (kard-), but this gloss was rejected and replaced by ᴹQ. kar¹ “building” (Ety/KAR). The form karma “deed” also appeared in some later writings, but was rejected (PE22/138).
