ᴹ√BEN root. “corner (from inside), angle from inside”
A (Noldorin only?) root in The Etymologies of the 1930s glossed “corner (from inside), angle from inside” with only one derivative, N. bennas “angle” (Ety/BEN). It might be a latter iteration of ᴱ√VENE “shape, cut out, scoop” from the Qenya Lexicon of the 1910s (originally glossed “small boat”) with derivatives like ᴱQ. vene/G. bent “small boat” and ᴱQ. venie/G. benn “shape, cut” (QL/100-101; GL/22).
