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

Etymology[edit]

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

Derivatives[edit]

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

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

Examples[edit]

Other versions[edit]

In earlier versions, the plural was Khuzûd.[1]
