N. thuia- v. “to breathe” (Category: to Breathe; Breath)

N. thuia-, v. “to breathe” (Category: to Breathe; Breath)

A verb in The Etymologies of the 1930s glossed “breathe” derived from the root ᴹ√THŪ “puff, blow” (Ety/THŪ).

Conceptual Development: In the Gnomish Lexicon of the 1910s, Tolkien gave G. festa- “breath” (GL/35), likely derived from the early root ᴱ√ǶEHE “breathe” (QL/41).
