ᴱ√TṂPṂ root. “build”
A root in the Qenya Lexicon of the 1910s glossed “build”, with derivatives ᴱQ. tump- “build”, ᴱQ. tumpo “shed”, and ᴱQ. tampo “well” (QL/93). It was likely related to ᴱ√TAMA “(beat) smelt, forge” (QL/88), as further evidenced by ᴱ✶tṃp- “beat” > ᴱQ. tump- in the Early Qenya Grammar of the 1920s (PE14/58). It thus may have reemerged in the later root √TAM “construct” from the late 1960s (PE17/107).
