Drû (pl. Drúin, coll. Drúath) is the Sindarin name for the mysterious people of Men who became known as the Woses in the Third Age.

[edit] Usage of plural

  • Drúin is the simple plural of the word.
  • The collective Drúath was modified as early as the First Age when it became known that they were enemies of the orcs. Later used to refer to a large number of the Drúedain.
  • Drúedain refers to the race as a whole.

[edit] Etymology

This Sindarin word comes from Drughu the Drúedain's own name for themselves.

Since Elvish languages don't have gh it was derived as drughu > dru'u > druu > drû
