^salca- “to mow, scythe, mow down”

ᴱQ. silkima adj. “ready for cutting” (Category: to Mow, Reap)

An adjective appearing as ᴱQ. silkima “ready for cutting” in the Qenya Lexicon of the 1910s under the early root ᴱ√SḶKḶ¹ that was also the basis for “grass” words (QL/84).

Conceptual Development: The Etymologies of the 1930s updated this root to ᴹ√SALAK+ for grass words (Ety/SALÁK), so I think this Early Qenya word can be updated to ᴺQ. salcima “ready for cutting, *harvestable”.
