§ Forlorn ’North Haven’ (TI.301-302)
§ Harlorn ’South Haven’ (TI.301-302)
These are two havens to the north and south of the Gulf of Lune.
The initial elements are clearly #for- ’north’ (PHOR- ’right-hand’) and #har- ’south’ (KHYAR- ’left hand’) respectively. A later note dated Feb. 9 1942 reads: lorn ’haven’ and londe ’gulf’ (TI:423). In The Etymologies, Q. londe ’road (in sea), fairway, entrance to harbour’ and N. lhonn ’narrow pass, strait, pass’ (later ’haven’, e.g. Lond Daer ’Great Haven’ (UT:450)) are both derived from LOD-, but there is also a direct gloss of N. lhorn ’quiet water, anchorage, haven, harbour’ from LUR- ’be quiet, still, calm’ (VT45:29).
This is a good example of the external development from Noldorin with L- yielding voiceless lh- (lhorn) towards Sindarin, which keeps voiced l- (lorn).
