morn

From Tolkien Gateway

morn is a Sindarin adjective meaning "black, dark".[1][2][3]

Etymology[edit]

The word derives from root MOR.[1]

Lenition[edit]

The lenited form vorn (m > v) apparently appears in Eryn Vorn ("Blackwood").[4][5] It is also likely seen in the compound galvorn and perhaps also in Aravorn.[6]

Examples[edit]

Other versions[edit]

In the published Etymologies appeared the Noldorin word moru ("black").[7] That spelling, however, was a misreading of the original manuscript, and has been corrected to morn.[8]
