ᴹQ. antaro n. “high mountain, peak” (Category: Peak, Summit)

ᴹQ. antaro, n. “high mountain, peak, *(lit.) great height” (Category: Peak, Summit)
ᴱQ. tormë “mountain (peak)”

A word appearing in The Feanorian Alphabet of the 1930s (PE22/22) and 1940s (PE22/52) with the glosses “high mountain, peak”. It appeared in The Etymologies of the 1930s as a proper name Antaro for a mountain in Valinor, but this name did not appear in the narratives or the maps (EtyAC/N, TĀ). Based on the entries in The Etymologies, it is an intensive noun form of ᴹQ. tára “lofty, high”, so literally means “*great height”.
