Khuzd

Revision as of 17:09, 9 April 2009 by Sage (Talk | contribs)

Khuzd' pl. Khazâd was the Khuzdul word for the "Dwarves".

Etymology

The word comes from the root Kh-Z-D; it is also visible in the words Khuzdul and perhaps Nulukkhizdîn.

Derivatives

The plural form Khazâd is the basis of Quenya casar and Sindarin hadhod.

The Adûnaic word hazad, meaning "seven", is presumably also related.
