ᴱ√PIPI root. “hang, trail”
A root in the Qenya Lexicon of the 1910s glossed “hang, trail”, with derivatives like ᴱQ. pint (pimp-) “tail” and ᴱQ. pipte- “fall (of folds or clusters), hang, trail” (QL/74). There are no signs of this root in Tolkien’s later writing, but I think it is worth retaining as a Neo-Eldarin root to serve as the basis for “tail” words.
