S. fuir adj. “north” (Category: Right (vs. Left))

@@@ likely from [pʰorja] as suggested by David Salo (GS/255), thus a later version of than feir² “right (hand)” with a different phonetic development. In the 2008 version of his Sindarin Dictionary, Didier Willis suggested fair as the Sindarized form of N. feir (HSD/fair), but more recent research indicates that fuir < *phorya is more likely, as suggested to me in a private chat by Elaran on 2018-08-26; see the entry on how [œi] became [ui] or [y] in Sindarin for further details.
