G. aivor n. “rookery, colony of birds” (Category: Bird)

⚠️G. aivor, n. “rookery, colony of birds” (Category: Bird)
ᴺS. !aemar “rookery, colony of birds”

The words G. aivor and aivin appeared in the Gnomish Lexicon of the 1910s with the glosses “rookery, colony of birds” (GL/17). The gloss of aivor was initially “nest”, and the form aivin was originally aivar, but Tolkien edited the entry to remove the gloss “nest” and change {aivar >>} aivin.

Neo-Sindarin: I’d adapt this word as ᴺS. aemar “rookery, colony of birds”, related to S. aew “bird” with the second element being S. bâr (mb-) “home”.
