Blood, in J.R.R. Tolkien's words

The Quenya words for blood are sercë and yár.

The Sindarin words for blood are sereg and agar.

Each of these elven languages have two words for blood, and I'm not sure what the difference is between the words. The first words seem more common. Perhaps the second words are more like blood in battle or gore.
