N. rhŷn n. “chaser, hound of chase” (Category: Dog)

The word N. rhŷn “‘chaser’, hound of chase” appeared in The Etymologies of the 1930s derived from primitive ᴹ✶ronyō under the root ᴹ√ROY¹ “chase” (Ety/ROY¹). It is not entirely clear how the ŷ arose in this word; compare N. rhein < rhœin (< *ronya) < ᴹ✶runya (Ety/RUN) which shows the more typical Noldorin phonetic developments. Perhaps it was a dialectical development, or was based on a variant primitive form ronı̯- with early o-loss.

Neo-Sindarin: This word is generally adapted as ᴺS. rŷn for purposes of Neo-Sindarin, as suggested in Hiswelókë’s Sindarin Dictionary (HSD).
