haudh

Revision as of 11:54, 7 July 2011 by Morgan (Talk | contribs)

haudh is a Sindarin word meaning "funeral mound".[1]

Etymology

The word haudh derives from Common Eldarin khabdā ("pile, (artificial) mound"), itself deriving from root KHAB ("heap up, pile up"). Since haudh also carried a connotation of a funeral mound "in which weapons and other valuables were also buried", the word shows an apparent influence from root KHAW ("cover up, hide away, lay in store").[1]
