Threnody- Silence's Homeworld

I found this out from the signing today in Seattle. Not the most mind-blowing question to ask, I realize, but for what it's worth, here it is.

I thought someone else said it was Threnody.

I edited it. I may have gotten the spelling wrong.

Sweet, thanks for that. *Goes to edit Coppermind*

 

EDIT: And now I'm getting some freaky formatting when I try to add the world to the character/place boxes. Help?

Is this spelling confirmed?

This is how I was told it was spelled by the first person to get the answer out of Brandon. If it's not, I'll just move it on the wiki. Not a problem. Also, considering how active Peter's been lately, I think he's altruistic enough that he would have popped in here by now and told us if we were spelling it wrong.

I totally forgot whether I posted it or not, but I was the one to ask it of Peter. He was all "want me to spell it for you?" He is almost 100% positive that is how it is spelled. Threnody.

(And I definitely trust Peter's spelling over Brandon's; you guys have no idea how terrible his spelling is)

Well Threnody is a real word after all.  Its a song or poem of mourning composed as a memorial to a dead person.  Very fitting for the world in question - its kinda like the cosmere equivalent of naming a planet 'Earth'.

Yea, good call on that. I didn't know it meant lament.

Interesting. "Threnody" is the name of a young female character in the Monster Blood Tattoo series, but that author routinely re-purposes real words - the main female character's first name is "Europe."

 

I wonder if the "first draft" excerpt he's reading aloud on the WoR tour is set on this world?

It is not.  That is set on Ashyn, one of the other worlds in the Greater Roshar system.

Yes I thought this very thing. I was like Threnody... isn't she a character in MTB and then my mind exploded needlessly because Cornish and Sanderson are two of my favourite authors.

I've never heard the word Threnody before. Within a day of learning about it here, I read it in a the third book of Brent Week's Night Angel trilogy. Funny little coincidence.

Remember that whole "Adonasium" thing? XD
