ᴱ√ṚTYṚ root. “peck, prick”

⚠️ᴱ√ṚTYṚ root. “peck, prick”
^ᴺ√IRIT “peck, prick”

A root in the Qenya Lexicon of the 1910s given as ᴱ√ᴵRTYᴵR “peck, prick” with derivatives ᴱQ. irtin “I peck, prick” and ᴱQ. irt “a peck, pinprick” (QL/43); the vowel i is simply the usual result of the syllabification of before a palatal consonant in Early Qenya (PE12/10). The words G. irt⁽²⁾ “beak (of small birds)” and G. irtha- “peck” are clearly related (GL/52). I think it’s worth positing a Neo-Root ᴺ√IRIT “peck, prick” to salvage these early words.
