dorgannas iaur

proper name. [Account of the] Shapes of the Lands of Old

A treatise on the geography of Beleriand, translated “account of the shapes of the lands of old” (WJ/192), a combination dôr “land”, the lenited form gannas of (otherwise unattested) cannas “shape” and iaur “old”. Despite the pluralities in the translation, the Sindarin forms are singular, so a more literal translation would be “Shape of the Land of Old”.
