S. mund n. “bull” (Category: Bull)

S. mund, n. “bull” (Category: Bull)
G. gagron “yoke ox, bullock”
G. tarog “ox”

An Elvish word for “bull” in a 1972 letter to Meriel Thurston appearing as an element in various names such as Aramund “Noble Bull” (Let/423). Given its lack of final vowel, this is likely the Sindarin equivalent of Q. mundo “bull” appearing in another letter to Mrs. Thurston from early in the same year (Let/422).

Conceptual Development: The similar word G. “ox” appeared in the Gnomish Lexicon of the 1910s serving as the basis for various cow-related words (GL/58).
