Early Primitive Elvish

vḷtḷ

root. release, set free; deprive, take away

A root in the Qenya Lexicon of the 1910s glossed “release, set free; deprive, take away” serving as the basis of the suffix ᴱQ. {-velte >>} -vilte or -valta “less” (QL/102). Its equivalent in the contemporaneous Gnomish Lexicon was G. -(a)vlid where the primitive form was given as vḷt (GL/23). There are no signs of this root in Tolkien’s later writing.
