KHYĀ root. “before, in front of place”

⚠️KHYĀ root. “before, in front of place”
KHY- “other”
epe “after of time; after or behind of place”

A root appearing in a list of roots for spatial and temporal directions from 1969, with a single unglossed (primitive?) derivative ✶khyar (PE22/147). Later in the same set of notes Tolkien seems to have reverted to earlier roots for these functions (PE22/168).
