gar

From Tolkien Gateway

gar is a Noldorin word of uncertain meaning.

The word appears in two places:

  1. in a phrase on a draft of Thrór's Map: "Lheben teil brann i annon ar neledh neledhi gar godrebh"[1]
  2. in an Elvish poem published in The Monsters and the Critics: "[...] Damrod dir hanach dalath benn gar meilien [...]"[2]

David Kiltz has suggested that gar likely means "to go", or something similar.[3] Hammond and Scull also appear to translate gar as "go" in their translation of the phrase on the draft of Thrór's Map.[1]
