Ilk. tolda- v. “to fetch” (Category: to Bring)

A verb for “to fetch” derived from primitive ᴹ✶tultā-, attested only in its 3rd-singular present form tolda “he fetches” (Ety/TUK). Here the short [u] became [o] before the final [a]. The change of [lt] to [ld] is harder to explain, since ordinarily voiceless stops became spirants after liquids in Ilkorin, as noted by Helge Fauskanger (AL-Ilkorin/tolda).
