ᴱ√KOMO root. “*ball, roll”
An unglossed root in the Qenya Lexicon of the 1910s with derivatives having to do with spherical shapes and rolling, such as ᴱQ. kóma “ball” and ᴱQ. konta- “roll up, roll, pack” (QL/47). There are no signs of this root being used for this meaning in Tolkien’s later writing, and these senses seem to have been transferred to √KOR.
