G. tavros n. “forest, wooded land” (Category: Woods, Forest)

⚠️G. tavros, n. “forest, wooded land” (Category: Woods, Forest)
S. taur “forest, wood, [N.] great wood, [G.] dense wood”

A word for “forest, wooded land” in Gnomish Lexicon of the 1910s (GL/69), almost certainly a derivative of the early root ᴱ√TAVA “beam” as suggested by Christopher Tolkien (LT1A/Tavari). It seems to be an element in the name G. Tavrobel, but later the initial element of that name was redefined as N. tavor “woodpecker” (Ety/TAM), so this word was likely abandoned, possibly replaced by S. tawar.
