Neo-Sindarin word for "to taste" and "taste", based on Quenya tyav- and tyávë and KJAB: cav- and cauf. What do you think?

Works for me.

WHAT have you done with LVS6 PE22:152?? Why the complete Sindarin paradigm of the cognate does not fit?

touché. Forgot about that.

Given the entry SYAD- [Etym:389], perhaps the verb might also alternatively be derived from a CE single action noun *kjab–ta/–to. I'm unsure as to what the ultimate Sindarin result would be, though. (Morris-Jones' A Welsh Grammar § 93 tempered by VT47&48 = *–abt– > *–apt– >> ?)

[No S cognate of Q tapta given in VT39:17?]

It would have gone to aptha and then presumably remain as such (no attested, but cf. Ecthelion, Belecthor).
However, with KYAW, which seems to be the final form of the stem, a basic ablauted caw < kauw < kjâw-a is suggested. Also kilme is not to be forgotten. cilf or rather cilith/cileth?

Fiona Jallings Jan 22, 2016 (20:58)

Argh, I forgot about the newer root KYAW - it slipped my mind because it's not yet in all the online dictionaries. Oh well.

So, what is the new idea? Already there is an entry cil- in the VQP and caw exists already as "top".
