ᴱ√TṚQṚ root. “*to preserve”

⚠️ᴱ√TṚQṚ root. “*to preserve”
^ᴺ√TARKWA “to preserve”

The root ᴱ√TṚQṚ appeared unglossed in the Qenya Lexicon of the 1910s with derivatives ᴱQ. tarqa- “dry, preserve; pickle” and ᴱQ. tarqin(a) “salted, dried; salt meat” (QL/94). It also had derivatives in the contemporaneous Gnomish Lexicon such as G. tarc “root” and G. {tarb >> tarp >>} tarp or tarf “dry, stale” (GL/69). I think it is worth positing a Neo-Root ᴺ√TARKWA “to preserve” to salvage some of these early words.
