√ENET* root.* “*one more”

- √ENET
*root.*“*one more”

A root with the sense “one more” that is an extension of √*EN* “again”, introduced by Tolkien in his discussion of Elvish numerals from documents written in 1968 (VT47/15-16; VT48/25).
One interesting use of this root is in the derivation of the word *yunquenta*, an alternate word for “thirteen” literally meaning “twelve and one more” = *yunque* + *enta* (VT47/15).
