Ilk. dorn n. “oak”
A Doriathrin noun meaning “oak” derived from the primitive form ᴹ✶dóron[o] (Ety/DÓRON). The accent mark in the root indicated that the first syllable was stressed, thereby preventing the initial [dor-] from becoming [dr-]. The second [o] was lost, however, due to the Ilkorin syncope.
