ᴱ√SAẎA root. “hunger”

⚠️ᴱ√SAẎA root. “hunger”
^ᴺ√SAYAK “hunger”

A root in the Qenya Lexicon of the 1910s appearing as ᴱ√SAẎA “hunger” mostly used in combination with suffixal -kǝ, having derivatives like ᴱQ. saike “hunger” and ᴱQ. saiqa “hungry” (QL/82). The root also had derivatives in the contemporaneous Gnomish Lexicon like G. saig “hungry” and G. saith “hunger” (GL/66). Some last indications of this root appears in Early Noldorin Word-lists from the 1920s in the words {saig >>} ᴱN. haib “hungry” and {sais >>} ᴱN. hais “hunger”, with Qenya cognates ᴱQ. saisa and ᴱQ. saiste respectively (PE13/146-7).

Neo-Eldarin: For purposes of Neo-Eldarin, I think it is worth positing an Neo-Root ᴺ√SAYAK “hunger” to salvage these early words.
