ᴱQ. teret (terekt-) n. “auger, borer, gimlet” (Category: Auger)

A noun appearing as ᴱQ. teret (terekt-) “auger, borer, gimlet” in the Qenya Lexicon based on the early root ᴱ√TEŘE “pierce” (QL/91; PME/91).

Neo-Quenya: The root √TER “pierce” appeared in Tolkien’s later writings so I think this ᴺQ. teret “auger, borer, gimlet” can be salvaged for purposes of Neo-Quenya, but I would update its stem form to tereht- for consistency with later Quenya phonology.
