ᴹ√KWǢ root. “onomatopoetic”
An onomatopoeic root from The Etymologies of the 1930s serving as the basis for Elvish words for “small gull, petrel” (EtyAC/KWǢ). Similar words also appeared in The Feanorian Alphabet from the late 1930s, derived from ᴹ✶kwǣnē (PE22/32). This root is unusual in that it is the only published root using ǣ (an a-fortified e) as its root vowel.
