Pines

From Tolkien Gateway
(Redirected from Thôn)

Pines were common evergreen trees, found throughout the lands of Middle-earth, but especially in the highlands of Dorthonion, a land which took its name from the pine trees that grew there.[1]

Other names[edit]

The Sindarin name for a "pine-tree" is thôn.[2][3]

In the Etymologies, Ilkorin thōn and Noldorin thaun (pl. thuin), deriving from root THON, are said to mean "pine-tree".[4][5]

In Tolkien's very early conception of the Elvish languages (dating from ca. 1917), the Gnomish name for a "pinetree" is aigos and the Qenya name is aikasse.[6]
