PAK root. “close, shut”

PAK root. “close, shut”

This root appears in a list of roots from 1959-60 as the opposite of √LAT “open, unenclosed, free to entry”, with a single derivative Q. pahta “closed, shut, private” (VT41/6). It seems to refer to the state of being closed, as opposed to √SKOL which refers to the act of closing. In the much earlier Gnomish Lexicon of the 1910s, primitive ᴱ√PAKA had derivatives like G. paga “court, paved floor” and G. pagra- “pave” (GL/63), but this seems to be unrelated semantically to later √PAK “close, shut”.
