S. thoron, n. “eagle”

The Sindarin word for “eagle”, derived from ✶thorono (Let/427). The form word is difficult to explain. In the phonetic development of Sindarin, it should have become thôr. David Salo suggested that it could be a back-formation from its plural *theryn (GS/291), perhaps also influenced by ancient names where it still appeared, for example: Thorondor “King of Eagles”.
