ᴱQ. kekteket (kektekett-) n. “clucking” (Category: Chicken (generic))

⚠️ᴱQ. cectecet (cectecett-), n. “clucking” (Category: Chicken (generic))
ᴺQ. ^cehtecet “clucking”

The word ᴱQ. kekteket “clucking” appeared in the Qenya Lexicon of the 1910s under the early root ᴱ√KEKE “cluck” (QL/46). In the margin Tolkien wrote cectecet, an early example of him using c in spelling for the sound [k].

Neo-Quenya: For purposes of Neo-Quenya, I’d adapt this word as ᴺQ. cehtecet “clucking”, since in later Quenya phonetics kt became ht (IPA [xt]).
