Khuzd pl. Khazâd was the Khuzdul word for the "Dwarves".

[edit] Etymology

The word comes from the Root Kh-Z-D; it is also visible in the words Khuzdul and perhaps Nulukkhizdîn.

[edit] Derivatives

The plural form Khazâd is the basis of Quenya casar and Sindarin hadhod.

The Adûnaic word hazad, meaning "seven", is presumably also related.

[edit] Examples

[edit] Other versions

In earlier versions, the plural was Khuzûd [1]
