    "True" Westron

    So I was reading the appenidix of Return of the King and I was looking through the last section where Tolkien explains how he "translated" westron to english for the purposes of the book. I'm wondering if he ever tried to put down a more comprehensive version of this language besides the few words he lists in the Return of the King. So anyone out there have any information on the true language of the hobbits?

    BeB, you made me waste my whole workday by introducing Ardalambion.


    But I thank you!

    Make sure to read his treatment of the Akallabeth in 'movie format'. It's something that I would definitely pay to see, although he hasn't finished it yet.

    Haha, you're welcome. :P

    I read the Akallabeth movie outline a long time ago on another site, but never realized it was the same person behind both. It's definitely an epic read, though IIRC he's a bit on the, uh, optimistic side about the nature of movie studios.

    Yes, I know. It's unfortunate. I guess I'll just have to win the lottery, become a self-supporting producer/director and do it myself.
