The History of Middle-earth (chibi version) - Part 284 - Research and development

Random question (actually, something I saw being asked elsewhere online): Is there a canonical singular form of the Sindarin word 'Galadhrim'? ('Tree-folk', referring to the people of Lothlórien.) After some research I guessed at Galadhel ('tree-elf') but I'd be inrerested to know if it's been discussed already elsewhere and a consensus reached. The same question would go for other Sindarin nation-names like Gondolindrim and Iathrim.

    Part 284: Research and develoment

    Next time: Part 285: Plan B... or is it C now?

    Chibis by the now-dead website formerly known as tektek.org
    Original story by and copyright to J R R Tolkien, ed. C Tolkien: Primarily based on the Silmarillion, but incorporating ideas from the 12-volume History of Middle Earth series.
