I saw the question on CoE, maybe we could discuss it here. Would *tertur 'win through' be a possible solution for 'convince, persuade' (see also:, or is that too literal?

+Tamas Ferencz If I were making that, I'd obviously settle for 'make (one) agree', ATH-tā > *atta- PE19:83-4 (or asta- analog.). Feels Quenya enough. Cf. auta, AW/WĀ. Sindarin, peresumably, *thoda < THĀ-tā cf. boda, AB/BĀ.

Nicely done... What's the English sense of the root THĀ- and where was it quoted again?

[LVS14] PE22:165-68, 'be helpful, be willing to assist, in any work etc., agree, con­sent'. It belongs to a near square of response:

NĀ 'yes, of facts' <> THĀ 'yes, of intent'
<> <>
LĀ 'no, of facts' <> BĀ 'no, of intent'

Here only NĀ is not an old reversible, due to clash with AN 'allative base' (VT48).
