Select Primitive Elvish Roots: DAL-ÐOTO

DAL “bottom, ground; [ᴹ√] flat”

This root first appeared in The Etymologies of the 1930s as ᴹ√DAL with the gloss “flat” and various derivatives of similar meaning (Ety/DAL). It reappeared again in later notes as √DAL “bottom, ground” written in the late 1950s or early 1960s (PE17/150). In both places, it had a variant form √LAD of similar meaning.

WED/*WAD

Could vanda “oath, pledge, solemn promise” come from *WAD being a variant of WED "bind"? That could mean that *vasta- "pledge, promise" could be a variant of vesta- which was repurposed as "wed, marry" and derived from BES later in the game.
