SAL root. “[unglossed]”

⚠️SAL root. “*harp(ing), lyre”
ᴹ√ÑGAN(AD) “play (on stringed instrument)”

The unglossed root ᴱ√SALA appeared in the Qenya Lexicon of the 1910s with derivatives like ᴱQ. salma “lyre, small harp” and ᴱQ. salumbe “harping, music” (QL/81). The root √SAL appeared again Common Eldarin: Verb Structure from the early 1950s to illustrate the reformed perfect form of its verb Q. asálie (PE22/132), but since these later forms are unglossed it is unclear whether they have the same meaning (“*harp(ing)”) as the earlier version of the root.
