noun. narrator

A Doriathrin noun meaning “narrator” derived from primitive ᴹ✶kwentrō (Ety/KWET). This word underwent several notable phonetic changes: first the voiceless stop was voiced after the nasal ([nt] > [nd]), after which [[ilk|[e] became [i] before the [nd]]] ([end] > [ind]) and finally an [[ilk|[o] developed between the consonant and the final [r]]] ([-dr] > [-dor]). These changes were all noted by Helge Fauskanger (AL-Doriathrin/cwindor).
