najak n. “goat”

najak n. “goat”

A primitive word for “goat” appearing in Common Eldarin: Noun Structure of the early 1950s, with masculine and feminine variants ✶najakō “he-goat” and ✶naikē “she-goat” (PE21/82). It might be an elaboration of √NAY “cause bitter grief or pain”, a root that was the basis for various “lament” words. This hypothetical relationship might be a later analog of the connection between early roots ᴱ√NYE(NE) “bleat” (the basis for “goat” words) and ᴱ√NYEHE “weep”; hat tip to Raccoon for suggesting this to me.
