*ᴱ√LAKA root. “*pick (up)”

⚠️*ᴱ√LAKA root. “*pick (up)”
KHOT¹ “gather, together in confusion, jumble”
LEP “pick up/out (with the fingers); finger”

A hypothetical root serving as the basis for words in the Gnomish Lexicon such as G. lag- “gather up, pick up, get” and G. lanc “chance; pick, choice, selection” (GL/52). There are no signs of this root in Tolkien’s later writing.
