N. tamma- v. “to knock” (Category: to Hit, Strike, Beat)

N. tamma-, v. “to knock” (Category: to Hit, Strike, Beat)

A verb appearing as its (Noldorin) infinitive form tammo “to knock” in The Etymologies of the 1930s, derived from primitive ᴹ✶tambā́- under the root ᴹ√TAM “knock” (Ety/TAM; EtyAC/TAM). In The Etymologies as published in The Lost Road Christopher Tolkien gave the infinitive form as tamno (LR/390), but Carl Hostetter and Patrick Wynne corrected this to tammo in their Addenda and Corrigenda to the Etymologies (VT46/17).
