ᴹQ. cucua, n. “dove” (Category: Bird (other))

A word for “dove” in The Etymologies of the 1930s, derived from ᴹ✶kukūwā base on a reduplicated form of the root ᴹ√ (Ety/KŪ). In The Etymologies as published in The Lost Road, Christopher Tolkien gave this as a pair of words ku, kua, but in their Addenda and Corrigenda to the Etymologies Carl Hostetter and Patrick Wynne clarified that it was a single word kukua replacing a deleted form {<< kua} (EtyAC/KŪ).
