root. *wing

An unglossed root in the Qenya Lexicon of the 1910s with derivatives like ᴱQ. vasa- “rush”, ᴱQ. vaska “making a plash or rush”, and ᴱQ. vasse “wing” (QL/100); in Qenya the root was blended with ᴱ√GWASA (QL/103). The distinction of the roots can be seen in their Gnomish derivatives: G. basbos “splash” and G. bass “wing, pinion” (GL/22) vs. G. gwass “rush, rushing, noise of rushing, splash” (GL/44). There are no signs of either of these roots in Tolkien’s later writing.
