Morris-Jones' eytomogy here doesn't perclude Tolkien's use of the other
interpretations of _Annwfn_ for other Elvish words, e.g. _ann�n_.
Indeed it seems very Tolkien to have two words of Elvish that have
fallen together in meaning in Human languages to explain the various
interpretations of the Welsh _Annwfn_.
