G. gwadhron n. “inhabitant (m.)” (Category: to Live, Dwell)

⚠️G. gwadhron, n. “inhabitant (m.)” (Category: to Live, Dwell)
ᴺS. !bardhon “inhabitant, native”

A word appearing as masculine G. gwadhron and feminine G. gwadhril “inhabitant” in the Gnomish Lexicon of the 1910s derived from the early root ᴱ√ŋwa[ð]- (GL/47).

Neo-Sindarin: Tolkien abandoned this early root, so I would adapt this word as gender-neutral ᴺS. bardhon “inhabitant”, an agental form of S. bardh “home” (PE17/164).
