To swim. Early root LUT, "to float" exists, but from it is derived lunte/lunt "boat" in Q and S, and lhoda- in N. The latter could be used for S, I think, but as loda-, since the lh seems to come only from root consonant cluster SL? How then to make a Q verb out of it? luta-? Is it really that simple? I know little of Q verb derivations.

HKF in NQNT uses lut- (Acts 27:43).

No problem, I think. It is not even early, it's etymological (and inherited from QL:057 LUTU giving G. lud, Q. lutu), and explicitly verbal in definition. There is no reason to thibk it inherently progressive, so no a can be added; however, the possibility of (cf. QL) lutu cannot be neglected, though it is mostly relegated to inceptives in Q later.

I thought of it more this morning, and I now also prefer lut-.
