?ᴱ√DṆTṆ root. “light up”

⚠️?ᴱ√DṆTṆ root. “light up”
KAL “light; shine, be bright, ⚠️[ᴱ√] shine golden”
DAT “fall down, fall to ground”

A hypothetical early root that would explain Gnomish words like G. dant “lamp” and G. dantha- “illuminate, light up, illustrate” (GL/29). In Tolkien’s later writing it was probably ousted by √DA(N)T “fall”.
