The same delight that led Tolkien to invent fourteen different languages and assorted alphabets for his Middle-earth dwellers now leads many of his fans to puzzle out translations for the Rohrirrim’s battle cries and to write their love letters in Elvish.
This is the book on all of Tolkien’s invented languages, spoken by hobbits, elves, and men of Middle-earth — a dicitonary of fourteen languages, an English-Elvish glossary, all the runes and alphabets, and material on Tolkien the linguist.
