ᴱ√HESE¹ root. “brother or sister”

⚠️ᴱ√HESE¹ root. “brother or sister”
KHAN¹ “brother”
NETH “(young) woman, female person; sister; fresh, lively, merry; [ᴹ√] young”

A root in the Qenya Lexicon of the 1910s glossed “brother or sister”, with derivatives having to do with siblings and blood relationships (QL/40). In the contemporaneous Gnomish Lexicon the root was given as heth¹, but it is not clear whether this was intended to be a variant root or a replacement (GL/48). In any case, there are no signs of this root in Tolkien’s later writing.
