Ilk. gôl¹ n. “light”

⚠️Ilk. gôl¹ n. “light”

A (rejected?) Doriathrin noun for “light” derived from primitive ᴹ✶gālæ appearing in The Etymologies (Ety/KAL, EtyAC/KAL). According to Christopher Tolkien’s notes, it was part of a rejected etymology for the name Thingol, but it isn’t clear whether this noun was rejected or if it was just the etymology. Its long primitive vowel [ā] became [ō] as was the norm in Ilkorin.
