ᴹ√SAY root. “know, understand”

ᴹ√SAY root. “know, understand”

A root in The Etymologies of the 1930s glossed “know, understand” with derivatives ᴹQ. saira “wise” and ᴹQ. sairon “wizard” (Ety/SAY). It is probably connected to later words like Q. alasaila “unwise” (PE22/154) and S. sael “wise” (MR/305) in documents from the 1950s and 60s, as suggested by Carl Hostetter (VT41/18).
