S. taug “firm, strong, (?withstand)”

An adjective in the Gnomish Lexicon of the 1910s glossed “stout, firm, strong (GL/31). It might be connected to the early root ᴱ√TURU “am strong” (QL/95). It might also be connected to G. drui or drû “wood”, whose root ᴱ√TUÐU “kindle” or *ᴱ√DUÐU “wood” (QL/95-96) was itself sometimes confused with ᴱ√TURU; compare G. Duruchalm vs. ᴱQ. Turuhalme “Logdrawing” (LT1/229, 244).
