cund

noun. prince

This word is only directly attested in the Etymologies, appearing as N. †cunn “prince” (Ety/KUNDŪ) and marked as an archaic form (EtyAC/KUNDŪ). It still appears in later writings as a element in some first-age Sindarin names from The Silmarillion: Baragund, Belegund and (perhaps) Felagund. Its Quenya cognate Q. cundo also appears in later writings (PM/260, PE17/117-8), indicating that †cund may have remained conceptually valid. Elsewhere, the third-age Sindarin word for “prince” is said to be caun¹ (PE17/102), so it seems likely the older form †cund fell out use.

caro den i innas lin

thy will be done

The fourth line of Ae Adar Nín, Tolkien’s Sindarin translation of the Lord’s Prayer (VT44/21). The first word caro is the imperative form of the verb car- “to do”. The third word is the definite article “the”, followed by innas “will” and the possessive pronoun lin “your”, with the adjectival element following the noun as is usual in Sindarin.

The function of the word den in this phrase is unclear. Bill Welden suggested (VT44/25) that is a marker of the passive voice (“thy will be done” instead of “do thy will”), and is the lenited form of ten, either a 3rd-plural pronoun “they” (as in impersonal English phrases such as “they say ...”) or a neutral pronoun “it”. Since “they” appears as di (← ti) elsewhere in the prayer, I think the second possibility is more likely.

See the entry for the second line of this prayer for a discussion of the use of the definite article before the possessed noun in this phrase.

Decomposition: Broken into its constituent elements, this phrase would be:

belair

proper name. Valinorian Elf

A term appearing in Tolkien’s “Words, Phrases and Passages from The Lord of the Rings” from the 1950s-60s (PE17/139). It had the singular forms belerion, belerieth, belair and plural forms belair, balarwaith, beleriath. It appeared in a discussion of terms for distinct tribes of Elves: Sindar, Noldor and Nandor, but it is unclear to which tribe the name applies. The plural form balarwaith suggests a relationship to the S. Balan “Vala”, so it perhaps means “Valinorian Elf” = Noldor.

no aer i eneth lín

hallowed be thy name

The second line of Ae Adar Nín, Tolkien’s Sindarin translation of the Lord’s Prayer (VT44/21). The first word no is the imperative form of the verb na- “to be” followed by aer “*hallowed, holy”; see that word’s entry for further discussion.

The third word is the definite article “the”, followed by eneth “name” and the possessive pronoun lín “your”, with the adjectival element following the noun as is usual in Sindarin. As pointed out by Bill Welden (VT44/24), the formation i eneth lín seems to be modeled after Welsh, with the possessive pronoun following the noun, which itself is preceded (at least sometimes) by the definite article. A rough English equivalent might be “*the name yours”. A similar construction appears in the Moria gate inscription: i thiw hin = “the signs these”.

Decomposition: Broken into its constituent elements, this phrase would be:

* teler

proper name. Teleri

The Sindarin equivalent of Q. Teler, used only by the people of Círdan and attested only in the plural forms Telir and Telerrim (PM/385). It may be that its singular form was not used.

Conceptual Development: In the Gnomish Lexicon from the 1910s, the earliest form of this name was G. Tilith (GL/70), though at this stage the name referred to the first tribe instead of the third. In Early Noldorin notes from the 1920s, it became ᴱN. Tiledh, a reference to the sea-elves (PE13/154).

A similar term teleir appears in the “Words, Phrases and Passages from The Lord of the Rings” from the 1950s-60s, where Tolkien indicated that it was used “as a general term distinguishing Sindar (and usually also Nandor) from either the Noldor and the Dark-elves” (PE17/139). The term teleir developed from the primitive adjective ✶teleryā, and appeared beside variants telerion and telerieth, probably male and female forms. These notes also included several plural forms: telir, teleriath and telerwaith.
