S. brith n. “gravel” (Category: Rock, Stone)

S. brith, n. “gravel” (Category: Rock, Stone)
G. brithla “pearl”

A noun for “gravel” seen in several late names like S. Brithiach and S. Brithon (UT/54).

Conceptual Development: In The Etymologies of the 1930s N. brith was glossed “gravel” and derived from primitive ᴹ✶b’rittē, though in this document it was a loan word from Ilkorin (Ety/BIRÍT). After Tolkien abandoned Ilkorin, it must have become a native Sindarin word.
