Turin and Glorund the Dragon - Lines 18 - 22
Submitted by Andrew Higgins on Sun, 2007-06-17 22:03.
Here is the next part of my attempt at translation - I will post these in small chunks and then post questions to the Forge about questions that are coming up. I am finding the etymologies a treasure trove of info to be gleened when looking for a word that is not currently evident in the corpus. Thanks to all for their comments and help.
Turin (Lines 18-22)
Ennas in orc-hoth, in roeg in emyn, orthorir
There in host on host the hell fiend orcs
"host on host" was originally going to render this as _glamhoth bo 'lamhoth_which seemed clunky thought best way was to say a horde of orcs.
_anethen_ - dervied from an (adverb prefix) + methen (final, last)
_oranassen_ - "having been bidded by" dervied from CE: stem HOR (urge, impel) cited in VT 41:17 - impel with mind which is what Morgoth may have done with orcs
_achatanner_ - "pulled down" - passed on suggestion taking from CE root SKAT (Break asunder) and have put through the suggestion in Thorsten Renk's Rouges guide to Sindarin word formation to get verb base _achata_
