Ilk. drôg n. “wolf”
A Doriathrin noun meaning “wolf” derived from the primitive form ᴹ✶d’rāk (Ety/DARÁK), probably from older *✶darākă. The accent mark in the root ᴹ√DARÁK indicated that the first syllable was unstressed, so that the initial [dar-] became [dr-]. Thereafter the long [ā], became [ō] and the voiceless stop [k] voiced to [g] after the vowel.
