ᴱ√TUVU root. “*receive”

⚠️ᴱ√TUVU root. “*receive”
KAB “hold, contain, retain, possess, have in hand; [ᴹ√] hollow”
ᴹ√TUB “to fall low[?], go down (below normal ground level), (esp.) to go down (sink, dive) into water”

An unglossed root in the Qenya Lexicon of the 1910s with derivatives like ᴱQ. tuvu- “receive, accept, take, require, cost” and ᴱQ. tūvima “acceptable” (QL/96). In the contemporaneous Gnomish Lexicon it had derivatives like G. tû- “receive, take, get; become” and G. tuvrin “acceptable” (GL/71). ᴱQ. tuv- “receive, take” reappeared in the Early Qenya Grammar of the 1920s (PE14/58). However, by the time of The Lord of the Rings of the 1950s and 60s, the verb Q. tuv- meant “find” or “discover” (LotR/971, PE22/155).
