thanc

From Tolkien Gateway

thanc is a Noldorin word meaning "forked".[1]

Since thanc appears in the name Orthanc, Didier Willis has suggested that thanc (retaining the same meaning) would be valid Sindarin.[2]

Etymology[edit]

The word derives from Old Noldorin sthanka, from root STAK.[1]

Compounds[edit]
