there's quite a few other bit and bobs there of Tolkien readin g extracts- well worth a listen if you are interested in how he pronounces words.[/quote:2z27j0ep]
Thank you very much for the link Pettytyrant, was really kind of you.. <img src='/images/smileys/smile.gif' border='0' alt='Smile Smilie' />
[quote="Odo Banks":naxp1qts]GB, how come the threads always get messy when you're involved? Do you do it deliberately?[/quote:naxp1qts]


... This made me laugh for quite a while. :lol:
Always glad to help a fellow fan Galadriel.
You might not believe this but some people on this forum seem to think I'm a bit grumpy. :shock: So don't believe anything you might hear from anyone making this scurrilous slander! Especially if his or her second name is Banks!

I haven't heard anything about you being grumpy, haha.. Though I haven't been on the forum in quite a while, so will have to see for myself whether its true or not, lol.. <img src='/images/smileys/smile.gif' border='0' alt='Smile Smilie' />
My second name is Politenesspersonified.

Yours Odo

NB Rumour has it that Mr Tyrant is 'crabbity' - don't know where the 'grumpy' comes from. <img src='/images/smileys/smile.gif' border='0' alt='Smile Smilie' />
It's a translation- not entirely accurate but the closest the English get to it.
Oh! I see...! :? This has become a bit awkward.... :shock:
Well yes it is indeed Mr Banks- here I was trying to present myself as not crabbity-even going so far as to use the tamer grumpy- and you come along and blow my bloody cover. <img src='/images/smileys/vevil.gif' border='0' alt='Very Evil Smilie' />
I suddenly am thinking of lots of other adjectives other than awkward! Bloomin' Banks family, pop up like moles in a garden. Wonder if there's such a thing as a mole mallet?
Joseph Dwarf...
It's in Danish, and it says something like:

"Take it easy, coco. It's just me. Help me prepare this antelope."
"You are not a monkey? you are sure?"

Good picture by the way :lol:
You must be referring to the Tintin panel Elrond 8-) . I had that pegged as Danish myself back on page 2, but never actually got around to posting the translation (I have an English copy of Tintin in the Congo).

Oh, sorry, I only just realised that this thread was so long, I'm not very observant, but if I had seen that I would have not hade to spend hours on google translate trying to find what language it was in... :oops:
No Worries! At least you bothered to translate it <img src='/images/smileys/bigsmile.gif' border='0' alt='Big Smile Smilie' /> .

I was listening to the BBC radio play of TH from the 1960's and there's some odd pronouncements in it. Most notably Thorin and Thrain, both of home have a silent H. Anyone know if this is accurate or a mistake by the BBC? Also Gollum is given an odd twist, its Gol-loom, and with a distinct break between first and last syllables.
Hmmm! I wonder if they asked Tolkien? :? Very odd! [b:1bs0k1oy]GB[/b:1bs0k1oy]
The same thought occurred to me GB. After all he was still alive to consult.
