ᴹ√BAT root. “tread”

ᴹ√BAT root. “tread”
?ᴱ√BATA “*build”

A root in The Etymologies of the 1930s glossed “tread”, with the derivatives in both (Middle) Quenya and Noldorin having to do with walking, trampling and paths (Ety/BAT). It may have been replaced by later root √PAT with various path and walking derivatives (PE17/34), or the two might have coexisted as light (√PAT) and heavy (√BAT) variants.
