ANGA root. “iron”

ANGA root. “iron”

The root √ANGA was established as the Primitive Elvish root for “iron” quite early in Tolkien’s writing, with the derivatives Q. anga and S. ang. The form ANGA appeared in in the Qenya Lexicon of the 1910s (QL/31) serving as both the root and the Early Qenya form, and G. ang appeared in the contemporaneous Gnomish Lexicon (GL/19). The root ᴹ√ANGĀ reappeared in The Etymologies of the 1930s (Ety/ANGĀ), and it appeared once more in notes associated with the 1968 The Shibboleth of Fëanor (PM/366).

ᴱ√EÐE² root. “*iron, steel”

A root in the Qenya Lexicon of the 1910s appearing beside ᴱ√DYEÐE “pig iron” (QL/105), probably the basis for ᴱQ. ere(n) “iron” (QL/36) as suggested by the editors. There are no signs of it past the 1920s, and it was probably supplanted by √ANGA.
