?ᴱ√HAKA root. “*squat”

A hypothetical root explaining words in the Gnomish Lexicon of the 1910s such as ᴱQ. haka- “squat”, G. hag- “sit, sit down” and ᴱQ. hakka/G. hacha “the hams, buttocks” (GL/47). There are no signs of this root in Tolkien’s later writing, but I think it is useful to hypothesize a Neo-Elarin root ᴺ√KHAK to let us salvage some of these early words.
