Can somebody please explain how تِلْقَاءَ is derived from root letters ل ق ي?.

I understand لْقَاءَ but don't understand the تِ in تِلْقَاءَ . Is it on some pattern?.

تِلْقَاءَ is the noun formed from the derived Form II of the root letters ل ق ي. The pattern here is not the common تَفْعِيلٌ (such as تفسير< فسّر and تكبير< كبّر) but تِفْعَالٌ . Another example of this noun pattern is for Form II of the root ب ي ن which is تِبْيانٌ.
