pinnath is a dialectical Sindarin or Gondor Sindarin word meaning "slopes; crests; ridges; group of downs".[1][2]

Etymology

The word appears to be a blend of the proper plural Sindarin form pennath + another plural form pinn, pind.[1][2]

Tolkien also seemingly experimented with making pinnath the plural form of a Sindarin noun pind/pinn ("especially used of long (low) hill with a sharp ridge against skyline"), a descendant form of a root KWIN ("crest, salient or top edge").[3]Template:Or
