The Ilkorindi (also Ilkorins) was an Elven race according to the early version of the legendarium in The Book of Lost Tales. It was applied to those Elves who were "not of Kôr" (cf. Úmanyar "not of Aman") and it referred to the Elves who stayed in the Great Lands. Their language was Ilkorin. In later versions of the legendarium, the Ilkorindi seemingly became the Umanyar, specifically the Avari, Nandor and Sindar Elves described in the later Silmarilion.
