?ᴱ√ITI² root. “precious”
A hypothetical root to explain words in the Gnomish Lexicon such as G. idra “dear, valued, precious” and G. idril “sweetheart”, the latter being the earliest etymology of the name G. Idril (GL/50). For the later etymologies of this name and the possible conceptual evolution of the root, see the entries for√IR “desire” and √IT¹ “glitter, shine, shimmer, twinkle”.
