orodrim is the Noldorin word for "mountain range".
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.
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").
