ᴹ√KHAY root. “far, distant, remote”

ᴹ√KHAY root. “far, distant, remote”
ᴱ√EIKA “*far, broad”

A root in The Etymologies of the 1930s glossed “far, distant, remote” with derivatives in Quenya and Noldorin of similar meaning such as ᴹQ. haira “remote, far” and (unglossed) N. hae (Ety/KHAYA; EtyAC/KHAYA). Tolkien’s continued use of words like S. hae “far, very far away” and haered “remote(ness)” in later writings indicates its continued validity (LotR/238; PE17/25). In a list of monoconsonantal roots from the late 1960s Tolkien gave ✶khā “far”, perhaps a more rudimentary form of this root, but the list where it appeared was struck through (VT47/35).
