ᴱQ. #hotyo- v. “to sneeze” (Category: to Sneeze)

A verb appearing as ᴱQ. hotin “I sneeze” in the Qenya Lexicon of the 1910s with past tense hontye, derived from the early root ᴱ√HOTYO “sneeze” (QL/50); the verb stem is probably also hotyo-.

Neo-Quenya: I’d adapt this word as ᴺQ. hotya- “to sneeze” for purposes of Neo-Quenya, based on a Neo-Root ᴺ√HOT, but redefined as a ya-formative verb and hence with past tense *hotonye.
