OS root. “making a hissing foaming noise”

⚠️OS root. “making a hissing foaming noise”
Val. Oš(o)šai “spuming, foaming”
ᴹ√OS “round, about”

A root appearing in a list of “sound words” from 1959-60, described as “making a hissing foaming noise” and serving as the basis for the name Q. Ossë (PE17/138). This is only one of many different etymologies for that name, and I think it probably represents a transient idea.
