ᴱ√ARA¹ root. “(be) dry”
A root in the Qenya Lexicon of the 1910s meaning “(be) dry” (QL/32). Given the many uses to which √AR was put later, it is unlikely this sense remained valid in Tolkien’s later writing; the later root ᴹ√PARAK and its derivatives is probably better for the purposes of Neo-Eldarin writing.
