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. reed-bed

A noun for “reed-bed”, apparently an elaboration of Ilk. esg “reed” (Ety/ESEK). In a hastily written entry in The Etymologies, a similar form esgar was glossed “shore” as a derivative of the root ᴹ√SKAR, but with no language specified (EtyAC/SKAR²). If it was Ilkorin, it probably underwent the same development as esgar “wound”. Both these words appeared to have been coined to explain the name of the town Esgaroth from the Hobbit.

noun. wound

A noun for “wound” derived from the root ᴹ√SKAR (Ety/SKAR). Apparently the initial [sk-] became syllabic [ṣk-], which then became [esk-]. Afterwards the [[ilk|[esk] became [esg]]].
