ᴱ√LEHE¹ root. “come, be sent, approach”

⚠️ᴱ√LEHE¹ root. “come, be sent, approach”

A root in the Qenya Lexicon glossed “come, be sent, approach” given as a variant of ᴱ√ELE¹ (QL/52). It is probably the basis for contemporaneous G. len “come, arrived” and G. lentha- “come towards speaker, approach, draw near” (GL/53) and possibly ᴱQ. lehe- or ᴱQ. lehta- “ride” from the English-Qenya Dictionary of the 1920s (PE15/76). There are no signs of this root in Tolkien’s later writing.
