DEL⁴ root. “will”

⚠️DEL⁴ root. “will”
NID “will; force, press(ure), thrust; [ᴹ√] lean against”

A root in etymological notes from 1968, meaning “to will with conscious purpose, immediate or remote”; it was distinct from “be willing, to assent, consent, agree”, which partakes of the will but also involves accident or change (NM/231). Given the many other uses to which √DEL was assigned, odds are this was a transient idea.
