G. saur n. “hound, wild dog” (Category: Dog)

⚠️G. saur, n. “hound, wild dog” (Category: Dog)
ᴺS. ^huar “wild dog”

The word G. saur “hound, wild dog” appeared in the Gnomish Lexicon of the 1910s (GL/67), probably a cognate of ᴱQ. savar “wild dog, jackal” under the early root ᴱ√SAẆA (QL/82).

Neo-Sindarin: For purposes of Neo-Sindarin, I’d update this word to ᴺS. huar “wild dog” using the later root ᴹ√KHUG that seems to have replaced ᴱ√SAẆA (Ety/KHUGAN); compare to ᴺQ. huar of similar meaning.
