ᴱ√QISI root. “*whisper”

⚠️ᴱ√QISI root. “*whisper”
ᴹ√SLUS “whisper”

An unglossed root in the Qenya Lexicon of the 1910s with variants ᴱ√QISI and {ᴱ√QIŘI >>} ᴱ√QIRI having derivatives like ᴱQ. qisi- “whisper” and ᴱQ. qiri- “murmur”, perhaps the meaning of the base roots (QL/76-77). The roots also seem have derivatives in the contemporaneous Gnomish Lexicon such as G. cwist “secret”, G. cwitha- “murmur, whisper”, and G. cwira- “rustle” (GL/29). The last indication of this root seems to be ᴱN. pis- “whisper” < ᴱ✶kwissa- in Early Noldorin Word-lists from the 1920s (PE13/152).
