      "to employ [C. Tolkien hesitatingly reads "enjoy", but the root is said
      to mean "employ, use"]"(V:400 root YUK)

      employ vs enjoy, cp latin uti vs frui, on whose relations in meaning see further St Augustine (who is basically saying we must employ earthly life in order later to enjoy God) whom Tolkien would certainly have read.

      Hence a root meaning employ could yield a derivative meaning enjoy by a shift of meaning easily understood. Or Tolkien could have changed his mind about what the root meant by an association as easily understood.
