      I have noted this resemblance, and several others between Khuzdul and
      Valarin:

      Valarin _a�ata_/_�ata_ "hair of head" (XI:399) and Khuzdul _shath�r_
      "cloud(s)" (LR, VII:174)

      Valarin _machall�m_ "one of the seats of the Valar in the Ring of Doom"
      (XI:399), and _m�chan_ "authority, authoritative decision" (XI:399) and
      Khuzdul _Mahal_ (S:44)

      Ardalambion also lists Valarin _m�chan�z_, pl. _m�chanum�z_
      ""Authorities", used of the greatest Valar, called _Aratar_ in Quenya",
      but without a citation...

      [These forms appear in XI:402. -- PHW]

      Valarin _ulu_/_ullu_ "water" (XI:400,401) and Khuzdul _�l_ "streams"
      (VI:466)

      Also, black speech _gh�sh_ "fire" (LR) seems like it could be related to
      valarin *_igas_ "heat" (isolated from _A��raigas_ "appointed heat" (XI:401).
