?ᴱ√FAPA root.

⚠️?ᴱ√FAPA root.
MAH “handle, manage, control, wield; ⚠️serve, be of use; [ᴹ√] hand; [ᴱ√] grasp”
PĀ/APA “touch; after, behind of place”

A hypothetical early root to explain words in the Gnomish Lexicon of the 1910s such as G. fab- “handle, touch, feel” and G. famp “handling, touching, feeling” (GL/33). There are no signs of this root in Tolkien’s later writing.
