The battle that ended the War of the Dwarves and the Orcs, in which Náin and Azog were both lost along with many on either side, but the Dwarves won the day.
Dwarvish pronunciations aren't generally explained in detail; the pronunciation guide given here follows the general rules for Elvish words, and is necessarily approximate. In this case we do have one hint, however: in volume 6 of The History of Middle-earth, a fragment of poetry rhymes Dwarvish Azanûl with the English word 'pool'.
Azog, Balin, Battle of Nanduhirion, Battle of the Mines of Moria, Burned Dwarves, Dwarves of the Iron Hills, Frerin, Fundin, Ironfoot, King of Durins Folk, Longbeards, Náin
