ᴹQ. sarne n. “stony place” (Category: Rock, Stone)
A noun for a “stony place” in The Etymologies of the 1930s derived from the root ᴹ√SAR which had other stone-related derivatives (Ety/SAR). In The Lost Road as originally published, Christopher Tolkien gave this as a “strong place”, but that was corrected to “stony place” by Carl Hostetter and Patrick Wynne in their Addenda and Corrigenda to the Etymologies (EtyAC/SAR).
