Hyarion, you made this page, any idea where its from? What language it is?--Quidon88 13:39, 3 March 2008 (EST)

The Etymologies, I recon. It's the only root here with its own article; as it has no links, I really doubt its use. As it's a root, it's not used in any language an sich, but rather as a building block; e.g. Alagon in Ancalagon and a Common Eldarin alak-wâ became alqua and alph, "swan". -- Ederchil 03:55, 4 March 2008 (EST)
Thanks, Ederchil, I'm not much of a linguist to be honest, I only came across this article by random... or fate? Is there a category just for roots of words? Maybe it should go in there?--Quidon88 11:25, 4 March 2008 (EST)
There's no cat YET... -- Ederchil 14:04, 4 March 2008 (EST)
