Ilk. gald n. “tree” (Category: Tree (generic))

Ilk. gald n. “tree” (Category: Tree (generic))

A Doriathrin noun for “tree” derived from the root ᴹ√GÁLAD (Ety/GALAD), probably from a primitive form *✶galadā with the second a lost due to the Ilkorin Syncope. Note that the first element [gal-] did not reduce to [gl-] because the initial syllable was stressed in the primitive word.
