ᴱ√ENU root. “origin‽”

⚠️ᴱ√ENU root. “origin‽”
ER “one, single, alone; [ᴹ√] be alone, deprived; [ᴱ√] remain alone”

A root in the Qenya Lexicon of the 1910s glossed “origin” but this gloss was marked with a “?” by Tolkien (QL/35). In this document, the root was the basis for ᴱQ. Enu “God”. Given the later alteration of the Elvish word for God to Q. Eru, it is pretty unlikely the root remained valid in Tolkien’s later conception of the Elvish languages.
