Rohirric

The Rohirric language was related to Westron, but was more archaic in style (LotR/1129). Tolkien “translated” Rohirric words into Old English in much the same way that he “translated” Westron into Modern English. The entries in this lexicon are all “translated” words, included because some of them shed light on equivalent words in the Elvish languages. The few examples of actual untranslated Rohirric words are treated as archaic Westron (marked with a †); see that language for details.
