√YOD root. “fence, enclose”
This root appears in a discussion of the possible origin of Sindarin -ion² “-land”, blended with the root √YON² “wide, extensive” (PE17/43). A more common variation of the latter root was √YAN¹, making the status of √YOD uncertain. The derivatives of √YOD are similar to those of √(G)LAN from the late 1960s, which presents a more complete paradigm.
