[tick] te- in the modern language is a prefix, as was its Proto-Germanic ancestor.

I've tried to summarize everything that's been established so far below. Please let me know if I should give some kind of hint.

"Word": teketting ef welledges
IPA: [təˈkʰɛtɨ̃ŋ əv ˈwɛɫˌʔɛd͡ʒəs]
  • A noun phrase.
  • The "Xing of Y-Zs", roughly, where X is a verb and Y and Z are nouns.
teketting
  • The first syllable is not descended from Proto-Germanic *ta.
  • The suffix -ing is used to form gerunds/verbal nouns.
  • The root of the verb is -ket(t)-, and its ancestor in Proto-Germanic began with *k.
  • te- is a prefix. The primary reconstructed meaning of the Proto-Germanic prefix from which it is descended has more to do with a state of being than motion or location.
ef
  • Corresponds to "of" in English.
welledges
  • A compound of two nouns, well and edges.
  • The suffix -(e)s indicates plurality.
  • The Proto-Germanic ancestor of edges began with a vowel.
