("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").
