naug (plural noeg) is a Sindarin word, meaning "dwarf".[1] Properly speaking, this is an adjective, while the correct independent word for "Dwarf" as a race is Nogoth[2], but the word naug can appear as an element in names referring to the Dwarves.

[edit] Examples


  1. J.R.R. Tolkien, Christopher Tolkien (ed.), The Silmarillion, "Appendix: Elements in Quenya and Sindarin Names", naug
  2. J.R.R. Tolkien, Christopher Tolkien (ed.), The War of the Jewels, "Part Four. Quendi and Eldar", p. 388
