hiswa (þ) adj. "grey" (KHIS/KHITH, Narqelion)

sinda

adjective. grey

The best known Quenya word for “grey” and an element in a number of names. It is also used as a noun Sinda “Grey Elf”. Tolkien sometimes used a variant form sindë, but the form sinda is more recognizable.

sinda

grey

sinda (þ) adj. "grey" (PE17:72); nominal pl. Sindar used = "Grey-elves", lit. *"Grey ones"; see WJ:375. Gen. pl. Sindaron in WJ:369. With general meaning "grey" also in Sindacollo > Singollo "Grey-cloak, Thingol" (SA:thin(d), PE17:72; see also sindë, Sindicollo);†sindanórië "grey land", ablative sindanóriello "from/out of a grey country" (Nam); the reference is to a "mythical region of shadows lying at outer feet of the Mountains of Valinor" (PE17:72). However, other sources give sindë (q.v.) as the Quenya word for "grey"; perhaps sinda came to mean primarily "Grey-elf" as a noun. Derived adjective Sindarin "Grey-elven", normally used as a noun to refer to the Grey-elven language. (Appendix F)

sindë

grey, pale or silvery grey

sindë (þ) adj. "grey, pale or silvery grey" (the Vanyarin dialect preserves the older form þindë) (WJ:384, THIN; in SA:thin(d) the form given is sinda, cf. also sindanóriello "from a grey country" in Namárië. Sindë and sinda_ are apparently variants of the same word.) _Stem sindi-, given the primitive form ¤thindi; cf. Sindicollo (q.v.)

cundu

prince

cundu ("k")noun "prince" (KUNDŪ; the "†_" indicating that this word is poetic or archaic was omitted in the Etymologies as printed in LR; see VT45:24)._ Cf. condo.

thingol

masculine name. Greycloak, Grey-cloak, Greycloak, Greymantle, Grey-cloak, Grey-mantle, Greymantle

Lord of Doriath whose name was translated “Greymantle” (S/56) or “Greycloak” (WJ/410), a combination of thind “grey” (SA/thin(d)) and the lenited form of coll¹ “cloak”.

Conceptual Development: In earliest Lost Tales, this name appeared variously as G. Tintoglin (LT1/131), G. Tinthellon or Tinto’ellon (LT2/50, 61) and G. Tinwelint, the last of these being his most common name in the early tales (LT1/115, LT2/50, GL/70). The name Thingol emerged in the Lays of Beleriand from the 1920s (LB/9) and was used thereafter. In Early Noldorin notes from this period, ᴱN. Thingol contained the word ᴱN. thing “prince” (PE13/154).

In The Etymologies from the 1930s, the name Thingol was designated Doriathrin [Ilkorin], and its second element was first Ilk. gôl¹ “light” (Ety/KAL) and then Ilk. (n)gôl “wise” (Ety/THIN). In Silmarillion revisions from the 1950s-60s, the later meaning of his name “Greycloak” emerged along with its Quenya equivalent Sindicollo (MR/217).

cund

noun. prince

This word is only directly attested in the Etymologies, appearing as N. †cunn “prince” (Ety/KUNDŪ) and marked as an archaic form (EtyAC/KUNDŪ). It still appears in later writings as a element in some first-age Sindarin names from The Silmarillion: Baragund, Belegund and (perhaps) Felagund. Its Quenya cognate Q. cundo also appears in later writings (PM/260, PE17/117-8), indicating that †cund may have remained conceptually valid. Elsewhere, the third-age Sindarin word for “prince” is said to be caun¹ (PE17/102), so it seems likely the older form †cund fell out use.

1) *mithren (lenited vithren, pl. mithrin). 2) thind (pale); no distinct pl. form. 3) (pale grey) mith (lenited vith; no distinct pl. form). David Salo would read mîth with a long vowel. Note: a homophone means ”white fog, wet mist”.

1) ernil (no distinct pl. form), 2) †cund (i gund, o chund, construct cun), pl. cynd (i chynd) (VT45:24). 3) The plural form conin (i chonin), occurring in the Cormallen Praise, is translated "princes" (Conin en Annûn = "princes of the west", Letters:308), but it is unclear what the singular would be.

A Doriathrin adjective for “grey” written heðu in The Etymologies, and derived from the primitive form ᴹ✶khithwa [kʰitʰwa] (Ety/KHIS). This word illustrates several interesting phonetic changes in Ilkorin.

  • The [i] became [e] before the final [a].
  • Both the : [kʰ-] > [x-] and [-tʰ-] > [-θ-].

Later the . Meanwhile the medial [-θ-] voiced to [-ð-] (“dh”).

  • Later the .
  • Meanwhile the medial [-θ-] voiced to [-ð-] (“dh”).
  • The primitive final [a] was lost.
  • Afterwards, the resulting final [w] became [u].

In most other Doriathrin words, a final [u] from [w] further developed into [o]; it is unclear why this change did not occur here.
