ᴱQ. hapta- v. “to eject, ejaculate” (Category: Penis)

A verb appearing as ᴱQ. hapta- “eject, ejaculate” in Early Qenya Phonology of the 1920s, originally with the sense “to cause liquids to spirt out” based on the early root ᴱ√KAPA “leap” (PE14/66). Oddly, Tolkien gave it the primitive form ᴱ✶skapi̯a-.

Neo-Quenya: Since the root ᴹ√KAP survived in Tolkien’s later writings, I’d retain this word for purposes of Neo-Quenya, but based on primitive *skaptā-.
