ᴹQ. sulka n. “root (especially as edible)” (Category: Root)
A noun in The Etymologies from around 1937 glossed “root (especially as edible)” and derived from ᴹ√SULUK (Ety/SÚLUK).
Conceptual Development: The Qenya Lexicon of the 1910s had ᴱQ. tarka “root” and ᴱQ. tarkele “great system of roots”, both derived from early ᴱ√TṚKṚ (QL/94). Their Gnomish cognate G. tarc was glossed “root (especially edible roots)” (GL/69). ᴹQ. turut (turuk-) “tree-stem” from the Declension of Nouns (DN) written in the early 1930s (PE21/35) might be a transitional form in between ᴱ√TṚKṚ and ᴹ√SULUK.
