G. rausta- v. “to hunt, chase, pursue (only in actual sense of following game)” (Category: to Pursue)
A word appearing as G. rausta- the Gnomish Lexicon of the 1910s with the gloss “to hunt, chase, pursue (only in actual sense of following game)”, a verb form of G. raust “hunt, chase” (GL/65). Tolkien also had G. rautha- “hunt, chase, pursue” on the same page.
Neo-Sindarin: For purposes of Neo-Sindarin, I would adapt these verbs as ᴺS. ruida- “to pursue, chase” based on the later root ᴹ√ROY¹ “chase” and cognate to ᴹQ. roita- of similar meaning, but removing the sense “hunt” and its connection to game animals to make it more distinct from [N.] fara- “to hunt”. I’ve seen this Sindarin neologism proposed in several places, but I’m not sure who first coined it.
