N. pann² n. “courtyard” (Category: Yard, Court)

A noun appearing as N. pann “courtyard” in The Etymologies of the 1930s under the root ᴹ√PAD, a cognate to ᴹQ. panda “enclosure” (Ety/PAD).

Conceptual Development: The Gnomish Lexicon of the 1910s had G. paga “court, paved floor” derived from the early root ᴱ√PAKA having to do with pavement (GL/63).

Neo-Sindarin: For purposes of Neo-Sindarin the word pann is often adapted as ᴺS. pand “courtyard” as suggested in Hiswelókë’s Sindarin Dictionary (HSD), in keeping with the principle that “nd became nn usually ... but remained nd at the end of fully accented monosyllables” (LotR/1115).
