Zirak is a Khuzdul word, appearing in Zirakzigil ("tine of silver").[1]

The word also appears as a short form of Zirakzigil, the Dwarves' name for the mountain called Celebdil or Silvertine by other races.[source?]

As zigil apparently means "silver", Zirak presumably means "tine" in Khuzdul.Template:Or
