taur is a Sindarin word, with several meanings, depending on the etymology.

It can mean:

  • king (of a tribe, not a land) (from târo TA3)
  • mighty, vast, sublime; poetic only or in ancient titles and names (from târâ/taurâ TA3/TUR)
  • large forest; note that it was used only for large forests, affected by the meaning of its homonyms (from taurê TÁWAR)

In Ilkorin (Mithrim?) taur means both "forest" and "wooden".
