ᴱ√MILI root. “*seed”

⚠️ᴱ√MILI root. “*seed”
RED “scatter, sow”
ᴹ√MIL “*soft, gentle, weak”

An unglossed root in the Qenya Lexicon of the 1910s with derivatives like ᴱQ. mile “seed” and ᴱQ. milnar(wa) “sown field” (QL/61). The root ᴱ√mil was also given as the basis for G. mail “flour” in the contemporaneous Gnomish Lexicon, though this Gnomish word was marked with a “?” (GL/56). There are no signs of this root having similar meanings in Tolkien’s later writing.
