habar (or sabar)[note 1] is an unattested Sindarin word likely meaning "delved mine", being reconstructed from an element found in the compound names Anghabar and Nornhabar.[1][2]

Note that this word is debatable as it is seen only in these compounds. Didier Willis has suggested that Tolkien perhaps reused the old Qenya root SAPA "dig, excavate" as a base for this word.[3][1]

Notes

  1. S usually mutates to H in Sindarin.
