S. thurin, adj. “secret, hidden, guarded”
Reference ✧ UT/157 ✧ Thurin “secret”
Ilk. thúren adj. “guarded, hidden”
An adjective meaning “guarded, hidden” derived from the root ᴹ√THUR (Ety/THUR). Most likely the primitive form was *✶thūrinā as suggested by Helge Fauskanger (AL-Ilkorin/thúren), where the short [i] became [e] preceding the final [a], before the final vowel vanished.
Conceptual Development: This word seems to be an element of the name Garthurian “Hidden Realm”. As such, a precursor might be the Gnomish word furion “secret, concealed” (GL/36) from the earlier versions of that name: G. Gar Furion or Gar Thurion “Secret Place”.
