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

The Quenya words for far (remote) are haira, eccaira, and avahaira. Words for far away are vahaia and háya (also haiya). The prefix palen- means far, distant, wide, to a great extent, over a wide space, to a distance.

The Sindarin words for far (remote, distant) are hae and haeron. The prefix palen- means afar, abroad, far and wide.
