ᴱQ. pat (papt-) n. “small leaf” (Category: Leaf)

⚠️ᴱQ. pat (papt-), n. “small leaf” (Category: Leaf)
Q. lassë “leaf; ⚠️[ᴱQ.] petal”

A noun in the Qenya Lexicon of the 1910s glossed “small leaf” under the early root ᴱ√PAPA whose derivatives mostly had to do with trembling, so perhaps referring to the trembling of small leaves in the wind (QL/72). It also appeared as an element in the phrase ᴱQ. tálin paptalasselindeën “with feet like the music of falling leaves” from the version of the Nieninqe poem from around 1930 (MC/216). In the version of the poem from the 1950s this phrase became táli lantalasselingië with papta >> lassë, so it seems this Early Qenya “leaf” word was abandoned.
