§ Imlad-ril >> Imlad-rist (TI:120) < N. imlad ’dell, deep valley’ (VT45:18) + -ril ’glitter, brilliance’ (RIL-) or + rhis, rhess ’a ravine’ (RIS-)
The first name of later Imladris seems to mean *’glittering/brilliant valley’. The following form is virtually identical to Imladris, which further simplifies -st to -s. But the writing with the hyphen may be more than just indication of the parts of the word. Boromir’s rhyme, following in the text, begins with the lines:
Seek for the Sword that was broken:
in Imlad-rist it dwells,
and there shall words be spoken
stronger than Morgol-spells. […] (TI:128)
The metre requires a stress pattern in Ímlad-ríst it dwélls, so one can guess that Imlad-rist is meant to be stressed on the first and ultimate syllable.
