ered is the form used by J.R.R. Tolkien in many early writings (including The Lord of the Rings) and by Christopher Tolkien in the published Silmarillion. In later writings, he changed the plural to eryd, which would yield, for example, Eryd Lindon.[2][note 1]

Notes

  1. Tolkien even noted: "Use Eryd in Silmarillion". Perhaps Christopher used Ered in The Silmarillion to be consistent with The Lord of the Rings (J.R.R. Tolkien, "Words, Phrases and Passages in Various Tongues in The Lord of the Rings", in Parma Eldalamberon XVII (edited by Christopher Gilson), p. 33.
