"there are Tolkien's latest thoughts, his best thoughts, and his published thoughts and these are not necessarily the same." — Tolkien's Legendarium
This article is non-canon.

Ilkorin was a language Tolkien wrote in the earliest versions of his Legendarium.

It was the language of the Ilkorindi, "those who were not of Kôr" (cf. Umanyar "not of Aman") and it referred to the Elves who stayed in the Great Lands.

In the later writings, the language was, replaced by Sindarin and Avarin. In The Etymologies, some names (for example, the rivernames of Ossiriand) are said to be of Ilkorin origin. However, in later notes[1][2], some of those names were renamed or given another etymology.

In this same phase, North Sindarin was conceived, and it replaced many of the linguistic features.
