ᴹQ. ehtelu-, v. (u-verb) “to well, bubble up” (Category: Spring, Well)
ᴱQ. quelu- “to well up”

A verb in the Quenya Verbal System of the 1940s, a combination of primitive ᴹ✶et “out” and ᴹ✶kelu- “flow, well up” (PE22/103), whose phonological developments mirror ehtelë.

Conceptual Development: It seems to be a later iteration of (archaic) ᴱQ. †kektelu- “bubble up” from the Qenya Lexicon of the 1910s, a verb form of ᴱQ. †kektele “fountain” (QL/46).
