noun. log for the fire

A noun in the Gnomish Lexicon of the 1910s given as G. tund “a log for the fire” and derived from ᴱ√tudh- (GL/42).

Neo-Sindarin: I think this word may be salvaged in Neo-Sindarin as ᴺS. tund, a general word for “firewood” based on the Neo-Root ᴺ√TUD.


  • Eq. tundo “firewood, fuel”


  • ᴱ√TUÐU “kindle” ✧ GL/72
