Doriathrin

dair

noun. shadow of trees

A noun meaning “shadow of trees”, derived from root ᴹ√DAY “shadow” and marked as identical in both the Ilkorin and Doriathrin dialects (Ety/DAY). Its primitive form was probably dair- ending in some final vowel, now lost; Helge Fauskanger suggested it might be dairē (AL-Ilkorin/dair, AL-Doriathrin/dair).
