ᴹQ. taras (tarass-) n. “mount, hill” (Category: Hill, Mountain)
A noun appearing in the Quenya Verbal System of the 1940s, with its singular form taras glossed “mount” (PE22/126) and its plural form tarassi glossed “hills” (PE22/126). It appears to be an elaboration of ᴹQ. tára “high”, so perhaps more literally means “*heights”. In later writings it seems Q. taras was used as a word for “tower” (PE17/22), though S. Taras did reappear as the name of a mountain in Sindarin (S/119).
