A word commonly used in Medieval magical invocations, and derived from the Hebrew word TZ'VAOT, which means "Hosts" as in "The Lord of Hosts." This information was kindly supplied me by Eric Friedman, who goes on to state: "In the original Hebrew, it bears no relationship whatsoever to the word SABBATH (SHABAT), meaning 'rest'. It is only in transliteration into Roman characters that they appear related . . . As for the 'legend' of the 'elder' saboth, this is a real Jewish tradition concerning the fallen angels; how they corrupted the Earth, necessitating the Flood (Genesis; Ch. 6). They are called 'Nephilim' (the Fallen) and 'Anakim' (Giants), both words having been used by Robert E. Howard for the names of antediluvian races in his Conan stories. One interesting point: the Anakim were the 'spawn' engendered by intercourse between the Nephilim and human women! . . .As for the 'Elder Saboth', the oldest known source for the legend is the 'Book of Enoch'," which can be found online at http://www.stmartin.edu/~dsuter/indexb.htm.

Of the dream-world. The shantak-birds are winged beings that guard Kadath [HPL Kadath 388, 391].
Beings of Rumor and Legend
The onyx-miners of Inganok it was believe that the shantak-birds are no wholesome things, and that it is fortunate that no man has ever truly seen one .
Shantak-birds are rumored to frequent a great unused onyx quarry, north of Inganok and close to the cold waste . Flapping sounds at another such quarry reminded Randolph Carter uncomfortably of the rumored shantak-birds . A slant-eyed merchant brought eggs of the rumored shantak-birds to Inganok to trade .
The father of all the shanktak birds is rumored to dwell in the great central dome of the palace of the Veiled King at Inganok, where it is fed in the dark .
The Awful Truth
The shantak-birds are larger than elephants and have heads like a horse's . To their wings cling the rime (ice) and nitre of nether pits . The shantak-birds have slippery scales instead of feathers .
The shantak-birds both understand speech, and can speak themselves. Thus, one shantak-bird understood the guttural speech of the slant-eyed merchant, and replied to him in tittering tones like the scratching of ground glass . Sometimes the shantak-birds wheeze and titter with impatience , or leer and titter at their victims .
The shantak-birds build nests on the ledges half-way up the peaks dividing Leng from Inganok [371-372].
The shantaks fear the night-gaunts that frequent certain caves near the topmost pinnacles [372, 388, 391].
Foes of Randolph Carter
In the cold waste, near the carven mountains, Randolph Carter saw the shantak-birds [367-368]. After being taken prisoner, Carter rode one the shantak-birds through the air [368-369]. They took him to the monastery of the high-priest not to be described . Later, Carter feared passing over Leng and past the monastery again, partly because of the risk of encountering the shantak-birds once more .
Carter asked for night-gaunts to bear him past the realm of the shantaks [388-389].
Nyarlathotep offerred Carter a shantak-bird to bear him to his fabulous sunset city. On arriving there, Carter was to prod the shantak-bird until it cried out, for its sound would make the Great Ones homesick. The shantak-bird was supposed to remind the Great Ones of Kadath and tell them that its halls are lonely . Then the shantak-bird was to utter its homing cry and fly back to Kadath, inspiring the Great Ones to follow behind . But the shantak-bird actually set course for Azathoth and infinity's center .

Intelligent, protoplasmic masses that were created by the crinoid Old Ones to serve as their slaves. These beings could mould their tissues into all sorts of temporary organs under hypnotic influence, to perform a variety of heavy work. Their expansions could be made to lift prodigious weights, including the stones that formed the vast cities of the Old Ones. [HPL Mountains 62] The shoggoths were the primary beast of burden for the Old Ones in their underwater cities, though other creatures were used on land. 
The Things that Should Not Be
The shoggoths are composed of a viscous black, iridescent jelly, like an agglutination of bubbles. They average about fifteen feet in diameter when a sphere. However, their shape and volume constantly shift, as they form temporary organs, including those of sight, hearing, and speech. Shoggoths reproduce by fission. The shoggoth that Dyer and Danforth saw was faintly self-luminous, with myriads of glowing green eyes forming and unforming as it moved. [66, 101]
Shoggoths have an apalling odour that is different from, and worse than, the smell of the Old Ones [93-95, 99].
While working as slaves of the Old Ones , the shoggoths gradually developed a semi-stable brain and an occasionally stubborn volition. The shoggoths became particularly intractable around the middle of the Permian age. Then the Old Ones fought a war of resubjugation, and were able to subdue the shoggoths through the use of weapons of molecular disturbance. Though the shoggoths showed an ability to live out of the water during the rebellion, the Old Ones returned them to living only underwater, since they were considered more difficult to manage on land. [67-68]
During the rebellion, when the shoggoths killed Old Ones, they would tear off the heads and leave the dead bodies coated with glistening, reflectively iridescent black slime [67, 94-95]
In their final, decadent phase, the Old Ones used shoggoths to build their new city in the underground sea beneath Antarctica. By this stage, the shoggoths grew to enormous size and singular intelligence, and could take and execute orders with marvelous quickness. They conversed with the Old Ones by mimicking their voices: a sort of musical piping over a wide range. They came to work more from spoken commands than hypnotic suggestions as in earlier times. 
Dyer and Danforth encountered a shoggoth that made the sound "Tekeli-li! Tekeli-li! " in musical piping tones [97, 98, 100, 101, 106]. The two scientists inferred that this sound was the imitated voice of the shoggoths' bygone masters, the Old Ones . Danforth hinted that Poe had secret sources when he wrote of the call "Tekeli-li! Tekeli-li! " in his novel Arthur Gordon Pym. 
Eventually the shoggoths could even mimic the Old Ones' writing with dots of slime [95, 96].
The Shoggoths Triumph
After the Antarctic became colder, the Old Ones adapted some of the shoggoths to land life, to perform needed work in their Antarctic land city. 
It is likely that the shoggoths finally killed all the Old Ones in the subterranean water city . At any rate, shoggoths now frequent the passages leading from the Antarctic land city down to the underwater city. The shoggoths have replaced some of the Old One's bas-reliefs with carvings of their own, which are decorative and conventional in nature, composed of a series of crude spirals and angles .
Those Old Ones who were accidentally wakened by the Miskatonic University Antarctic Expedition, were later slain by shoggoths when the Old Ones attempted to make their way to the city in the underground sea. [93-96]
Abdul Alhazred was apparently ignorant of the history of the shoggoths on this planet, Though Alhazred wrote of shoggoths in the Necronomicon , he did not hint that they ever existed on earth, except in the dreams of those who had chewed a certain alkaloidal herb. [62, 95]
The shoggoths have survived to modern times in other locations, aside from Antarctica. Thus, Zadok Allen hinted that the Deep Ones had brought, or were planning to bring, shoggoths to Innsmouth. If already present, the shoggoths are apparently in the houses north of the river between Water and Main Streets. The Innsmouth narrator saw a shoggoth in his dreams of the Deep Ones, and woke up in a frenzy of screaming. [HPL Innsmouth 340, 367]. Based on these references, the shoggoths appear to be allied with the Deep Ones.
Edward Pickman Derby visited the pit of the shoggoths, while he was possessed by Asenath Waite, only to awake there in terror when his own consciousness returned to his body. The pit is located down the six thousand steps, somewhere near Chesuncook, Maine. Later, Derby raved about the pit of the shoggoths when he felt Waite struggling to take over his brain again. [HPL Doorstep 287, 296.] Note that Waite was originally from Innsmouth.
Beneath the dreamlands, shoggoths frequent a foul lake in nether pits that are visited by the night-gaunts. This is somewhere near the peaks of Throk in the Great Abyss. The shoggoths at that lake are said to be puffed and in doubtful sleep. [HPL Fungi XX]
When the Old Ones of K'n-yan explored the black abyss of N'kai, they found amorphous lumps of viscous black slime that took temporary shapes for various purposes. Though these beings were not referred to by name, their description certainly resembles shoggoths. These particular beings oozed along stone channels and worshipped onyx and basalt images of Tsathoggua. [HPL Mound 141]

A deity worshipped by an ecstatic fertility cult, and often revered together with other eldritch deities.
While traveling in K'n-yan, Zamacona encountered a shrine of Shub-Niggurath, the All-Mother and wife of the Not-to-Be-Named One. The Mound narrator compares Shub-Niggurath to a "sophisticated Astarte." Astarte was an ancient Semitic goddess; the comparison suggests a cult of fertility, which is consistent with the epithet "All-Mother." Zamacona, a pious Catholic, found the rites of Shub-Niggurath to be repulsive, most especially the emotional sounds uttered by the celebrants. [HPL Mound 144-145]
According to Von Junzt's Nameless Cults , Shub-Niggurath was worshipped in ancient Mu as the Mother Goddess and the Goat with a Thousand Young. A copper temple was dedicated to her. T'yog, the High Priest of Shub-Niggurath, regarded her as one of the gods friendly to humanity, and felt inspired by her to try to vanquish the malignant cult of Ghatanathoa [HPL Aeons 273]. Shub-Niggurath also counted on the help of Shub-Niggurath's sons; these might perhaps be the deities Nug and Yeb, whom T'yog also regarded as friendly to man [273-274].
During a May-Eve ritual recorded outside a Vermont cave, a human and an Outer One voiced praises to several deities, including Cthulhu, Tsathoggua, Nyarlathotep, and Shub-Niggurath. The fragmentary text includes references to Shub-Niggurath as the Black Goat of the Woods and the Goat with a Thousand Young. There are also references to the Lord of the Woods; the reference to Woods might imply that the Lord of the Woods is a male aspect or paramour of Shub-Niggurath [Whisperer 226-227].
On Walpurgis-Eve, Alonzo Typer saw worshippers within a cromlech chanting "Iä! Shub-Niggurath! The Goat with a Thousand Young!" [Diary 321].
Devotees of arcane cults tend to call out to Shub-Niggurath whenever they get excited. There is a startling lack of continuity to these interjections, which often pop up in conversations or writings that otherwise seem unrelated to Shub-Niggurath. It is almost as if the phrase implies devotion and awe for all the elder deities, rather than merely Shub-Niggurath. Thus,
Even the victims of the eldritch cults sometimes blurt out the same invocation, as if expressing fear or awe, or perhaps unconsciously verbalizing things they had witnessed and could not forget:

An unintelligent vagabond, hunter and tapper in the Catskill Mountains who had exotic dreams of being an entity of light in a luminous realm. This light entity was periodically subject to a degrading bondange, such as his birth in the limiting body and mentality of Slater, but temporarily regained its freedom during Slater's dreams. The entity was consumed with the desire for revenge against a being called the "oppressor." Slater used to rave of these dreams after waking from them, and in his excitement after one dream, butchered Peter Slater and was confined to a state psychopathic institution. As Slater lay dying, the Sleepnarrator was able to commune with him telepathically via an electrical device. After Slater's death, the light entity flared up in the night sky as the new star Nova Persei, close to the daemon star Algol, the beacon of the oppressor [HPL Sleep 26-35].
A Catskills Mountains resident, who was slain when he tried to restrain the raving Joe Slater [HPL Sleep 27-28].
Formerly of Pretoria, Transvaal, South Africa. Father of Thomas Slauenwite. Died 1916. [HPL Winged 244]
Born Trenton, N.J. in 1885, son of Paul Slauenwite. Served in France in WWI in a South African regiment. Studied medicine at Columbia University and specialized in African fevers. While in Mombasa, was accused by his friend Henry Sargent Moore of having stolen a major theory from the late Sir Norman Sloane. [HPL Winged 244]
Moved to M'gonga, learning there of a fatal disease caused by the bite of the local "devil-fly," of which he obtained specimens [244-248]. Created a disguised variant of the species by crossing it with tsetse flies and painting the wings blue [248-250]. Posing as a London entomologist named Neville Wayland-Hall, sent specimens of the infected flies to Moore, claiming that they were harmless and asking for Moore's help identifying them. 
Received news of Moore's infection, illness, and eventual death [251-254]. Inferring that he was now suspected of murder, fled to Johannesburg and adopted the name Frederick Nasmyth Mason, a mining properties broker from Toronto .
Was harassed in Johannesburg, and later Bloemfontein, by a devil-fly whose behavior suggested that it carried Moore's soul, which was seeking revenge. Died of fright after being bitten by the fly. [254-262] Left a journal about his murder plot and his later downfall [243, 262].

Artifacts left by the lost Old Ones of Antartica. The Miskatonic University Antarctic Expedition found soapstones, six inches across by one and a half inches thick, in the shape of five pointed stars. There was a smooth depression in the center. The tips were broken off and there were signs of other cleavage at the inward angles and in the center of the surface. With a magnifying glass, Carroll thought he could make out groups of tiny dots in regular patterns. The camp dogs seemed to hate these soapstones [HPL Mountains 19-20]. The Expedition later found more of the star-shaped soapstones, among the bodies of several Old Ones; these stones were smaller than the previous specimens, with no marks of breakage except at some of the points . On returning to their wrecked camp, the Expedition found a pile including several of the greenish soapstone fragments with five-pointed rounding and faint patterns of grouped dots . When the Old Ones buried six of their dead in snow graves, the grave mounds resembled the soapstones with five points and the groups of patterned dots [33, 39]. From records in the Old One's city, the scientists inferred that the Old Ones used small, flat counters, five-pointed and inscribed, as money. The scientists theorized that the smaller of the various greenish soapstones found by their expedition were pieces of such currency . After returning home, the Expedition leaders refrained from showing the more puzzling of the greenish soapstones .
The soapstones are reminiscent of both the magic signs mentioned by Zadok Allen, and the star-stones of ancient Mnar. Like the magic signs, the soapstones are attributed to "Old Ones"; however, whereas the magic signs are said to have a swastika marked on them, the soapstones are said to have patterns of small dots. One can imagine that a swastika could be formed as a pattern of small dots. However, we don't know the shape of the magic signs and whether they were five-pointed like the soapstones anyway.
Regarding the star-stones of ancient Mnar, they are definitely five-pointed like the soapstones, but are marked with the Elder Sign 2, which seems too complicated to be described as a "pattern of dots."

See: Sussex Manuscript.
A unique manuscript which purports to be a translation of the Necronomicon of Abdul Alhazred. The work is leather-bound, and written in hand-produced blackletter with illuminations. The manuscript is in English, but written in the style of several centuries ago. The opening page is headed Cultus Maleficarum in Libri quattuor, which would appear to mean something like Cults of Evil Sorcerors in Four Books. Its origin is given as "Sussex - mdxcviii," — that is, Sussex, 1598. And it is said to be "ex hyms Baronis Fredericus Primus," which would seem to mean that it was transcribed or owned or commissioned by a Baron Frederic the First. The work is far too short to be the complete Necronomicon, which in any case is divided into more than four books. It is possibly a collection of extracts from the unpublished translation by John Dee (1527-1608).
Asaph Gilman's papers included baffling passages from the Sussex Manuscript. [AWD Gorge 109] Prof. Vibberto Andros loaned a transcript of the Sussex Manuscript to Claiborne Boyd .
