‽ᴱ√EWE root. “*lamb”

A root in the Qenya Lexicon of the 1910s serving at the basis for the word ᴱQ. eule “lamb” (QL/36). It is likely also the basis for G. iol “lamb” (GL/51) given how [eu], [iu] became [io] or [iu] in Gnomish (PE15/13). These words might be salvaged for purposes of Neo-Eldarin using a (hypothetical) root *√EW(EL), though the Neo-Sindarin word for “lamb” would need to become ᴺS. ŷl to reflect Sindarin phonology.
