Thread: pronounce, peter, pronounce.
Second, I did notice Peter's slip as well. Only because awhile back, I had listened to a Tolkien scholar discussing LOTR and noticed his pronounciation of Celeborn. Doubting his pronounciation (for Seleborn made sense to me), I checked the appendix and; lo and behold, the C was suppose to be pronounced as a K. Considering the number of people Peter Jackson had working on Elvish, it is a surprise they slipped on this one.

My Gandalf/Gondolv rebuttal was posted on 13/7/2002 at 04:27 under Gandalf under Characters. I had to go back to see what I said; it was merely common sense.

I know that Celeborn is Keleborn and Gandalf is Gandalv etc but I still have to try very hard to use it that way. Tolkien admitted that few people would ever use this way of pronouncing his names and even only a few die hard fans would take a serious enough interest in the appendices to notice the correct versions. Therefore I accept the movie version as ok. any readers of the book will eventually discover the truth. anyway Seleborn still sounds right to me
