Talk:Haradrim

We have separate pages for the Haradrim and Southrons. These should be merged and disambiguated. I'll be moving the current contents of the Haradrim page to the Southrons page, since it's currently the smaller of the two. --Ted C 16:02, 19 October 2006 (EDT)

Hm, I think we definitely need to merge the two but we should probably think about which term is the most common and have the article content located there. I think in this case Haradrim is more common. The Southrons article can then have information about the actual title and why it was assigned to them, how Tolkien derived the word, etc. --Hyarion 16:16, 19 October 2006 (EDT)

That's probably a good place to put it; I just wanted to go ahead and put the article together in one place or the other. We can sort out the location now that that's done. --Ted C 16:26, 19 October 2006 (EDT)

[edit] Edits

I reverted some of the useful edits by Serpent Lord. In other articles, we put the "traits and culture" section at the bottom of the articles, so I returned that section to its place in order to maintain uniformity (which is open to discussion of course). I also removed some of the speculation on the language to keep the text "in-universe". I also removed the references to the names Barangils and Harwan as according to the context, they are certainly not "Haradrian".

Just for the record, I'd like to point out that "Barangil" seems to me like anglicized Gondor Sindarin, analyzed by me as baran = brown and -kil = -ing (cf. Tarkil) therefore a direct translation of "Swerting". Sage 21:49, 18 December 2014 (UTC)
