ᴱ√PERE root. “*endure”

⚠️ᴱ√PERE root. “*endure”
PER “half; [ᴹ√] divide in middle, halve”
ᴹ√BOR(ON) “endure”

An unglossed root in the Qenya Lexicon of the 1910s Tolkien said was similar in meaning to ᴱ√PENE “*through” (QL/73). Some of its derivatives had similar meanings like ᴱQ. perma “passage; pass, aperture”, but most of its derivatives had to do with enduring and endurance. In Tolkien’s later writings the sense “endure” was generally assigned to the root ᴹ√BOR(ON).
