ᴱQ. puhta n. “coitus, *sex” (Category: to have Sexual Intercourse)

A noun appearing as ᴱQ. puhta or pukta (the second possibly a primitive form) in Early Noldorin Word-lists of the 1920s as the cognate of ᴱN. hoith “coitus” (PE13/147, 163), probably derived from a variant form of the early root ᴱ√PU(HU) “generate” (QL/75).

Neo-Quenya: I would retain this word as ᴺQ. puhta “coitus, *sex” for purposes of Neo-Quenya based on a Neo-Root ᴺ√PUK for Elvish “sex” words.
