ᴱ√MAKA² root. “*net, mesh”

⚠️ᴱ√MAKA² root. “*net, mesh”
REM “entangle, snare, trap”
MAK “cut, hew with a sharp edge, [ᴹ√] cleave; sword, fight (with a sword); ️[√] forge metal; ⚠️kill, slay”

An unglossed root in the Qenya Lexicon of the 1910s serving as the basis for words like ᴱQ. makse “net” and ᴱQ. makseta- “enmesh”; a parenthetical comment indicates the true form of the root was ŊʷAKA (QL/58). There are no signs of this root in Tolkien’s later writing.
