ᴱ√RAÞA root. “*arch, bridge”

⚠️ᴱ√RAÞA root. “*arch, bridge”
Q. yanta “bridge”
S. iant “bridge”

An unglossed root in the Qenya Lexicon of the 1910s with a single derivative: ᴱQ. ranta “arch, bridge” (QL/79). G. rantha “arch, bridge” from the contemporaneous Gnomish Lexicon is clearly also related (GL/65). In later writings, Tolkien revised the Elvish words for “bridge”, driving them from ᴹ√YAT or √YAN, but this root may have remanifested later as √RATH “climb”.
