N. angwedh n. “chain, fetter, (lit.) iron-bond” (Category: Chain)

N. angwedh, n. “chain, fetter, (lit.) iron-bond” (Category: Chain)

A word in The Etymologies of the 1930s glossed “chain, (lit.) iron-bond”, a combination of N. ang “iron” and N. gwedh “bond” (Ety/WED). The same words appeared in notes on The Feanorian Alphabet from the 1930s, but with the gloss “fetter” instead of “bond” (PE22/32).

Conceptual Development: A similar word ᴱN. angath “fetters” appeared in the Early Noldorin Dictionary from the 1920s, but there it was simply the plural of ᴱN. ang “iron”, so literally “*irons” (PE13/159).
