      A Sindarin _-gud_ with the meaning "enemy" appears in _Thuringud_
      ("Hidden Foe", WJ pp.256, 299). But the isolated form would rather be
      *_cûd_, I think, since this word must reflect a Common Eldarin *_kôtô_,
      derived from the base KOT- "strive, quarrel". It is thus a variant of
      _coth_ "enmity, enemy", which is cited in "The Etymologies" as the
      second element of _Morgoth_ ("Black Foe").
