Ilk. garm n. “wolf”
A Doriathrin noun for “wolf” derived from the root ᴹ√ÑGAR(A)M (Ety/ÑGARAM), probably from a primitive form *✶ŋgaramō given its Quenya and Noldorin cognates ᴹQ. narmo and N. garaf (as suggested by Helge Fauskanger, AL-Doriathrin/garm). If so, the second a was lost due to the Ilkorin Syncope, and the the initial [ŋg-] simplified to [g-]. The initial syllable of the primitive form was probably stressed, since the initial [ŋgar-] did not simplify to [ŋgr-].
Conceptual Development: An earlier version of this entry had the root ᴹ√ƷARAM, but this produced the same form Dor. garm in Doriathrin [Ilkorin] since initial [ɣ] became [g].
