ᴱ√LAQA root. “catch”
A root in the Qenya Lexicon of the 1910s glossed “catch”, contrasted with ᴱ√LAPA “enfold” and ᴱ√LṆQṆ “catch, come on, light on, find, get” (QL/51, 55). There are no signs of this root in Tolkien’s later writing, and it may have been replaced by ᴹ√GAT of similar meaning (Ety/GAT).
