Derivatives

Other versions of the legendarium

In the Etymologies there are two homophonus roots: AR1 is a root which signifies "day" and it seems to have been redefined by Tolkien (cf. AS); the root AR2 has no exact signification although its derivatives relate to "outsideness"; the general sense seems to be somewhat retained for the root AR as given in Eldarin Roots and Stems).[3]
