ᴱ√ŊETE root. “catch, get”

⚠️ᴱ√ŊETE root. “catch, get”
^ᴺ√Ñ(G)ET “catch, get”

A root in the Qenya Lexicon of the 1910s given as NETE “catch, get”, with derivatives like ᴱQ. nete- “get” and ᴱQ. enget “a hap” (QL/66). A parenthetical comment indicates the true root is ŊETE, as supported by the derivative enget.

Neo-Eldarin: As the only attested Quenya word for “get”, the word net- “to get” is popular in Neo-Quenya despite its early creation. I think it worth positing a strengthened Neo-Eldarin (Quenya-only?) root ᴺ√Ñ(G)ET to retain this word.
