S. imrath n. “long narrow valley with road or watercourse running through it lengthwise, *(lit.) valley course” (Category: Dale, Valley)
An element in the Sindarin name Imrath Gondraich for “Stonewain Valley”, described in Tolkien’s Nomenclature of the Lord of the Rings as “a long narrow valley with road or water course running [?]lengthwise” (RC/558). Its literal meaning is im + rath = “*valley course” and probably refers as much to the river or road running through the valley as the valley itself.
