Ilk. dôn n. “back”

Ilk. dôn n. “back”

A Doriathrin word for “back” explicitly marked as a noun (Ety/NDAN). Its primitive form might have been *✶ndān, so that the primitive long [ā] became [ō] and the initial nasal [n] was lost before the stop (as suggested by Helge Fauskanger, AL-Doriathrin/dôn).
