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

The Quenya words for grass are salquë (grass) and linquë (grass, reed). The word sara means (stiff dry grass, bent)

In Sindarin there are several words that can mean grass, thâr (stiff grass), plus nan (wide grassland, land at foot of hills with many streams) and parth (field, enclosed grassland, sward).
