Etymology

In the manuscript "Notes on Óre", óre ("heart (inner mind)") derives from the Common Eldarin root ƷOR. The word is also said to be associated with the root OR, although probably not "semantically connected".[3]

In the Etymologies, the word óre ("rising") derives from root ORO.[2]

Óre is also the name in Quenya of the twenty-first letter of the Tengwar alphabet.[1] It is the first letter of the sixth grade or Tyellë, which contains "semi-vocalic" consonants and it is the sixth letter in the dental or t-series of consonants, the Tincotéma. In most modes this letter represents weak or untrilled R (usually used medially or at the end of words).[4] However, in the Mode of Beleriand, as in the inscription on the West-gate of Moria, this letter represents N.[5] The Westron name for this letter is Ar.[6]

Notes

  1. The term óre, despite being translated as "heart", does not have the same meaning as in English: it does not correspond to the physical organ, memory, reflection, emotion, feelings or positive impulses. The óre is a conscience or instinct that advises or warns the Incarnates to proper courses of action. (Cf. J.R.R. Tolkien, "Notes on Óre" (edited by Carl F. Hostetter), in Vinyar Tengwar, Number 41, July 2000, p. 11-2)
