ᴱ√SISI root. “singe, etc.”

⚠️ᴱ√SISI root. “singe, etc.”
^ᴺ√THIS “singe, etc.”

The root ᴱ√SISI “singe, etc.” appeared in the Qenya Lexicon of the 1910s with derivatives ᴱQ. sisi- “scorch, singe, fry” and ᴱQ. sisin “parched, scorched” (QL/84). Its derivatives in the contemporaneous Gnomish Lexicon were words like G. thisin “parched, withered” and G. thith “dust” (GL/73), indicating an actual root form *ᴱ√ÞISI.

Neo-Eldarin: For purposes of Neo-Eldarin I think it is worth positing a Neo-Root ᴺ√THIS to salvage some of these early words.

Reference ✧ QL/84 ✧ “singe, etc.”
