UG

Revision as of 22:51, 4 February 2011 by Morgan (Talk | contribs)

UG is a Primitive Quendian root signifying "dislike".[1] Patrick H. Wynne has suggested that the root is "probably related" to UK.[2] Appearing in a late manuscript concerned with negation,[3] it has been suggested that the root could be related to the early negative stem UGU (yielding the Quenya derivative ūmea "evil").[1][4][5]
