Sting Question about the Words of Hurin

This has probably been discussed before: But what did Hurin's words Aure entuluva mean. I know it means day shall come again, but what's the proper interpretation of that?

Probably that the "day shall come again", since he faught through the night, early morning. But *also* and probably more important that Morgoth should eventually fall..

"Day shall come again" is what it means. It means just what it says - the 'night' that Morgoth has brought upon the world will not last forever. Gorthol has the right idea.

I'll bet you that it's quenya! Oh, no... [img]smilies/frown.gif[/img] it's probably sindar. Hmph. Nobody appreciates the beauty of quenya anymore! It's all sindarin this and sindarin that. Ugh. Anyways, I know that Aure has something to do with dawn...probably day too, since the words are connected and such.

Oh yes. I remember now! Nienor and Turin were the children of hurin, right? And Morwen was his wife! But were they elves, or men?

They were men.

Hurin was from the house of Hador.
And Morwen was from the house of Beor if I remember correctly.

yep, you remember right, al'Thingolfin.
Morwen was also closely related to Beren.
