[ᴱ]*√NAL root. “call, cry”

[ᴱ]*√NAL root. “call, cry”

A root implied by the Sindarin words S. nalla- “to cry” and S. nalla “call” (LotR/729; PE17/94). It might be related to ᴹ√ÑGYAL(AM) “talk loud or incoherently” from The Etymologies of the 1930s (Ety/ÑGAL) and ᴱ√NALA “ring, play” from the Qenya Lexicon of the 1910s (QL/64). The true form of the latter might be *ᴱ√NDALA given the Gnomish word G. dala- “sing or ring” vs. ᴱQ. nala- of the same meaning (GL/29).
