#ᴱ√ƷETE root. “*kin”

⚠️#ᴱ√ƷETE root. “*kin”

A root for “kin” in the Gnomish Lexicon of the 1910s appearing only as an element in the primitive form ᴱ✶ŋuaʒet- > G. gwaid “kinsmen, relations; companion”, but with a number of other obvious derivatives such as G. ged “kinsman†; friend, chum” and G. geth “clan, kindred, folk” (GL/38, 43). There are no signs of this root in Tolkien’s later writing.
