Salkinórë

From Tolkien Gateway

Salkinórë was the name of a continent in the Great Lands, later known as Africa, according to the early version of the legendarium associated with The Book of Lost Tales.[1]

Etymology

The name Salkinórë is in Qenya. It is glossed as "Grass Land" by Eldamo, consisting of salki or salkë ("grass") + nórë ("land, nation, family, country").[2]

Another name for the place was Andesalkë, consisting of ande(a) ("long") + salkë, meaning "Long-grass".[3] An earlier form of Andesalkë was Andisalkë.[4]
