Two questions to phonetics masters (ómanduri): PE19/58 gives the primitive word tálgàrta “high boot”, with, as far as I can see, no descendants.

  • had *garta survived into Quenya, would *arta be the only conceivable form it would take?
  • had the word survived as a compound only, what the resulting form be any different, e.g. *talyarta?
