-inbar

Revision as of 17:36, 23 May 2011 by Sage (Talk | contribs)

inbar is an element from the Khuzdul name Barazinbar and is translated as "horn".

The actual word is not known, but perhaps it was *nibar or *mibar since words of three radical vowels such this (look below) don't begin with a vowel.

Etymology

The word derives from the Root M-B-R[1] but it is possible that it is perhaps a mistype for *N-B-R.[2]
