Q. tauca adj. “stiff, wooden” (Category: Wood, Timber)

Q. tauca, adj. “stiff, wooden” (Category: Wood, Timber)

A word in a list of “large & small” roots from around 1968 glossed “stiff, wooden” and derived from the root √TAW “wood” (PE17/115). Its Sindarin cognate S. taug was gloss “firm, strong”, so its ancient sense was probably something like “stiff like wood”.
