Beware, older languages below! The languages below were invented during Tolkien's earlier period and should be used with caution. Remember to never, ever mix words from different languages!



noun. landscape, scene, *(lit.) land-shape

The word G. dorven “landscape, scene” appeared in the Gnomish Lexicon (GL/30), probably a combination of G. dôr “land”G. benn “shape”.

Neo-Sindarin: For purposes of Neo-Sindarin, I would adapt this word as ᴺS. dorgant “landscape, scene”, a combination of S. dôr and later word S. cant “shape”, also hinted at by the word S. dorgannas“shapes of the lands” = “✱geography”.
