N. hâl n. “fish” (Category: Fish)

N. hâl, n. “fish” (Category: Fish)

A noun for “fish” appearing on the front page of The Etymologies of the 1930s derived from primitive ᴹ✶khala (EtyAC/KHAL¹). As such, it was probably based on the root ᴹ√KHAL “(small) fish” (Ety/KHAL¹), but may have transferred to ᴹ√SKAL² “small fish” when Tolkien revised that root (Ety/SKAL²).
