ᴹ√DARAM root. “beat, hew”

ᴹ√DARAM root. “beat, hew; [ᴱ√] batter, thud”

A root in The Etymologies of the 1930s with the glosses “beat, hew” (Ety/DARÁM). It is probably a later iteration on the early root ᴱ√TARA(MA) “batter, thud, beat” from the Qenya Lexicon of the 1910s (QL/89). Its Gnomish forms DAR/D(A)RAM/DAM make clear the actual early root was ᴱ√DARA(MA), since initial d- > t- in Early Qenya. The last Gnomish form hints that the root in the 1930s might also have been related to ᴹ√(N)DAM “hammer, beat”.
