[[Image:Peter Xavier Price - The Two Trees.jpg|thumb|right|200px|''The Two Trees'' by [[Peter Xavier Price ]]]]'''Ezellohar''' ([[Vanyarin Quenya|VQ]]. "Green Mound", pron. {{IPA|[eˈzelːoxar]}}; [[ezello]] = green) was the  [[Green Mound]] before the western gates of [[Valmar]], also called [[Corollairë]], where the [[Two Trees]] of [[Valinor]] grew.
  
'''Ezellohar''', also called '''Corollairë''', was the '''Green Mound''' before the western gates of [[Valmar]], the city of the [[Valar]]. After being hallowed by [[Yavanna]] and watered by the tears of [[Nienna]], it was the place where the [[Two Trees]] of [[Valinor]] grew.<ref>{{S|Days}}</ref>  Later [[Morgoth|Melkor]] and [[Ungoliant]] came to Ezellohar and attacked the Two Trees and Ezellohar was blackened.<ref>{{S|Darkening}}</ref>
+
Later the [[Noldor]] almost certainly would have called this '''Erellohar''' (pron. {{IPA|[eˈrelːoxar]}}, [[Third Age|TA]] Exilic {{IPA|[eˈrelːohar]}})&mdash;this form is unattested, but likely because of the natural progression of [[Noldorin]] [[Quenya]] sound laws that followed.

==Etymology==
+
The name ''Ezellohar'' (pron. {{IPA|[eˈzelːoxar]}}) is [[Vanyarin]] for "Green Mound", containing the element ''ezel'', ''ezella'', ''ezello'' ("green").<ref>{{WJ|AD1}}, p. 399</ref><ref>{{PM|Shibboleth}}, note 9, pp. 356-7</ref> ''Ezellohar'' was derived from the [[Valarin]] name '''''Ezellôchâr'''''.
+
 
+
''Corollairë'' (pron. {{IPA|[ˌkorolˈlaɪre]}}) is a [[Quenya]] name, which appears to be a compressed version of ''Coron Oiolairë'' or "Mound of Ever-summer" (from ''[[coron]]'', "mound"<ref>{{S|Appendix}}, ''coron''</ref> and ''[[oio]]'', "ever"<ref>{{LR|Etymologies}}, '''OY'''</ref> plus ''[[lairë]]'', "summer"<ref>{{App|Calendars}}</ref>).
