et

prep. and adv.? "out", when followed by ablative "out of" VT45:13 or literally "out from", as in EO: et Eärello "out of the Great Sea"; cf. also et sillumello "from this hour" in VT44:35. Et i pe/péti, untranslated phrase, perhaps *"out of the mouth" VT47:35. Prefixet- "forth, out" ET, also in longer form ete- as in etelehta, eteminya; verb ettuler *"are coming forth" ettul- = et + tul-. SD:290; read probably *ettulir or continuative *ettúlar in Tolkien's later Quenya. The forms etemmë and etengwë VT43:36 seem to incorporate pronominal suffixes for "us", hence ?"out of us", inclusive and exclusive respectively. The pronoun -mmë denoted plural inclusive "we" when this was written, though Tolkien would later make it dual exclusive instead see -mmë. Second person forms are also given: etelyë, etellë ?"out of you", sg. and pl. respectively Tolkien would later change the ending for pl. “you” from -llë to -ldë.
