SKOL root. “shut, close”

SKOL root. “shut, close”

A root appearing in notes on the Words, Phrase, and Passages from the Lord of the Rings with two variants √KHOL and √SKOL and the gloss “shut, close”; it served as the basis for S. Fen Hollen “Shut Door” (PE17/98). The roots were followed by a series of unglossed Quenya forms all beginning with hol-.

Neo-Eldarin: The note where it appeared does not provide enough information to determine whether this root was √KHOL or √SKOL, but elsewhere √KHOL appeared with the gloss “crow, cry aloud” (PE21/82), so for purposes of Neo-Eldarin I think it’s better to assume this root was √SKOL “shut, close”.
