ᴱ√KOÐO root. “revere‽”

⚠️ᴱ√KOÐO root. “revere‽”
^ᴺ√KOD “revere”

A root in the Qenya Lexicon of the 1910s given as ᴱ√KOŘO “revere?” (question mark is Tolkien’s) with derivatives like ᴱQ. korda “temple”, ᴱQ. kordon “idol”, and the holy city of ᴱQ. Kor (QL/48). Many of its Gnomish derivatives began with g-, such as G. gort “idol” and G. gorthin “fane, temple” (GL/41-42), so the true root may have been *ᴱ√GOÐO. The city name ᴹQ. Kôr was in later writings derived from ᴹ√KOR “round” (Ety/KOR). However, for purposes of Neo-Eldarin I think it is worthwhile to postulate a root ᴺ√KOD that might be used to salvage the Early Qenya words for “temple” and “idol”, as they were used heavily in Helge Fauskanger’s NQNT (Neo-Quenya New Testament).
