Revision as of 10:42, 14 July 2011 by Morgan (Talk | contribs)

orodrim is the Noldorin word for "mountain range".[1]

As the word was used in the compound name Thangorodrim (which survived in The Lord of the Rings), one can assume that the form is also a valid Sindarin word.Template:Or The word orodrim is also listed by David Salo in his Neo-Sindarin glossary.[2]

Etymology

orodrim consists of orod meaning "mountain", and the suffix -rim which is a collective plural meaning "a great number, a host".Template:Or

In the Etymologies, Noldorin orodrim derives from root ÓROT ("height, mountain").[1]
