ᴱN. girdh n. “entrails, bowels, inwards” (Category: Belly, Stomach)

⚠️ᴱN. girdh, n. “entrails, bowels, inwards” (Category: Belly, Stomach)
ᴺS. ^irdh “entrails, bowels, innards”

A word appearing as ᴱN. girdh in Early Noldorin Word Lists of the 1920s, glossed either “inwards, entrails” (PE13/144) or “entrails, bowels” (PE13/161), with “inwards” being an archaic English variant of “innards” according to the editors. This word was originally a plural form of ᴱN. gir “interior”, from primitive ᴱ✶ʒirdǝ.

Neo-Sindarin: I would adapt this word as ᴺS. irdh “entrails, bowels” for purposes of Neo-Sindarin based on this primitive form, since the ʒ vanished in Sindarin.
