ᴱN. #teloth n. “plain” (Category: Plain, Field)

⚠️ᴱN. #teloth, n. “plain; [G.] roofing, canopy, shelter” (Category: Plain, Field)
S. talath “flat lands, plain, vale”
N. tobas “roofing, roof”
N. orthelian “canopy”

A noun appearing as G. teloth in the Gnomish Lexicon of the 1910s with the gloss {“roofing, cover, shelter” >>} “roofing, canopy, shelter” derived from the root ᴱ√tel- “cover in” (GL/70). It was an element in the name G. Dor-na-Dhaideloth “[Land of] the Heaven Roof” (LT2/287). In the Lays of Beleriand of the 1920s the element Deloth in this name was glossed “Plain” (LB/49). Both these meanings were later abandonned, and this name eventually became S. Dor Daedeloth “Land of Great Dread” (WJ/183).
