root. reach, go all the way, suffice

A root in The Etymologies of the 1930s glossed “reach, go all the way, suffice” with derivatives like ᴹQ. fárea/N. farn “enough” and ᴹQ. farya- “suffice” (Ety/PHAR). The root was initially glossed “reach, catch” (EtyAC/PHAR). A possible precursor to this root is hypothetical ✱ᴱ√FATA which could have served as the basis for words in the Gnomish Lexicon of the 1910s such as G. fad “enough” and G. fadrin “sufficient” (GL/33).
