Of course, plenty of us are non-English (me included!) as you can well see in our member profiles, there is also a thread somewhere "Where you are all from?"
There are many non-english people her. Like Celebrian and me, we are Norwegians Big Smile Smilie
Chicken-attacks are nasty, ever played Zelda64? Attack the coccos and they attack you. Death by chickens indeed! *lol*
So enlighten us raptor, where do you live? I am not English, but American. I know that does not count towards your question, but ......

Transsylvania-not kidding.... Very Big Grin Smilie Elf With a Big Grin Smilie Yes,yes........any of you got some spare blood?We're really running low on it.....
A fantastic region of the world! I have such wonderful memories from Sarmisegetuza in Orastie Mountains, Sibiu, Sebes, Alba Iulia...
WOW!You visited my country?Yay!Ever been to Cluj?(it's where I live!) Thumbs Up Smilie
B*lgian here. Very Big Grin Smilie
No, Raptor, I did not pass by Cluj...
Anyway, I will never forget my holidays in Transsylvania, an incredible region! I even started to learn a little Roumanian - from a book entitled "Vorbiti Romaneste?". All my memories and adventures I had there are now coming back. Some of them were so silly! But I also saw many breathtaking views and met nice people!
Can an englishman join in here? I hope so cos I'm english but now living in Japan and have friends (who are japanese and not members of PT) who love LOTR's but dont really know much about the background of the country it was written in. Does that mean I can join your posts???!!!
I am English, well actually Irish but English will do.
Hey Cirdan,
Welcome back, I have really missed you! I don't think we hav had a chat since the World Cup (when was that, anyway?).


I am Canadian. I have met a few Canadians in the chatroom but I don't think I have met any in the forum. Any other Canadians out there? Big Smile Smilie

I'm Texan, does that count as Non English? I think that's probably as non english as you can get and still be caucasian...

Taz: Irish, but English will do?? What kind of an Irishman are you?! Big Laugh Smilie
Welcome to the forum, Ringfacwen. Hope you enjoy yourself exploring the site, and I look forward to seeing you around Smile Smilie
Hey Ringfacwen
I am glad you found you way to Planet-Tolkien.

yay, a fellow Canadian. Big Smile Smilie

/me does a Prog happy dance.
If you click on the Thread called Help on the Index page, Ringfacwen, and then open a Thread therein called Information for Newbies, you will find several useful tips for doing things/navigating the site etc. If you do get stuck, though, don't be afraid to ask.
I am 100% pure Bulgarian born in Russia though!
So acutally the right answer to ask is:Are there any english folks around here!
And the answer is a bunch, but probably only about ten percent, which is merely a guess. Check out the Where are you all from????? in The Prancing Pony Tavern to find out more. Happy Elf Smilie
Am I the only Australian here? Sad Smilie

I guess my fellow countrymen are too busy watching the footy, turning the meat on the barbie and sinking a sixpack. Wink Smilie Big Laugh Smilie

Elda, so that's how you know Russian (while talking to you in chat).

I'm a Russian born in Russia Big Laugh Smilie i think that would be right Wink Smilie
Thought i lived in Russia for only about 2 1/2 years- then we mooved to France, so i speak French also. and after about 5years, we moved to Canada,,,, and that's where i am now Big Smile Smilie

So, i'm a Russio-French- Canadian Wink Smilie *best i could think of*

Wiggle Smilie - i wonder if this qualifies as a Prog happy dance -
Born in England but class my self as British does this count?
Born and raised in the deepest pits of Malm, Skne, Sweden!!! But not fully swedish....no no I have mexican/swedish blood running through my veines....

So I am DEFINATELY NOT counted as an englishman....Bad King Smilie

But I still got an A+ in englishOrc With Thumbs Up Smilie

But, sorry I won't be nasty, but I dont understand your german @Andrea ? What means Lieb Erobert Alle?? can you write it in English please?? BITTE BITTE BITTE BITTE BITTE (;-)) )
I'm from Belgium, and believe it or not, proud of it too. Animated Wink Smilie

Just for the record: Andrea, here's your sentence in Dutch:

Liefde overwint alles.

And I can only agree with it. Big Smile Smilie
Scroll up Aster.
Hi Andrea,
At last someone else speaking Polish! But your sample of Polish is really, hmmm, astonishing!
I could try Russian here, but I don't think the characters will hold. So I won't try. Orc Grinning Smilie

It just means about "Love will outlast everything" or something like that. But I'm afraid it's not really German, no... Not that my German is good, I used to hate German because it's so difficult! Anyway, I think it should be sth like: Liebe berwint alles. (or something like that anyway Tongue Smilie )

Thanks Tom for the explanation, after the dutch Vision of the sentece I understand, then the dutch and the german can be similar.

Hi! I'm from Italy (I live near Venice)

Am I the only Italian here? Sad Smilie
Forget it, I thought I was the only Belgian around, but boy was I wrong! And Belgium really is a tiny country. So I guess there are other Italians and Turkish out there. Big Smile Smilie
Well, I'm brazillian... The land of coffee... Soccer... That's all folks!
I think I'm the only Lancastrian here, I think I'm the only person who lives in Manchester as well!
I'm from Bury and Sort of proud of it, in that comical, it's an inbread yet technilogically advanced dump! Tongue Smilie
I am sure I am the only bulgarian here.And I am pretty sure I will be the only one.
Seems like bulgarians are not much of Tolkien fans...I don't know why Sad Smilie
I wish there was at least one comrade in here but I guess I am out of luck.Well maybe it's better that way.You don't want to see two bulgarians in one place...it's a disaster Tongue Smilie
I`ll take your word for it! Big Laugh Smilie
It can't be that bad there's 8,191,000 of you!
What about a french-speaking German-Canadian? Big Smile Smilie Am I the first?
Well, you're the first when it comes to the German part, but I'm afraid I beat you by many months to the french speaking Canadian part!! Orc Grinning Smilie
Well I'm Slovene... hiya Smile Smilie *waves*
I believe I'm like 1/8 or 1/4 swedish, I think 1/8. My papa's (my grandpa) parents lived in sweden then came to the U.S. i think, like immigrants so that means my papa is all swedish because his parents both were and that would make my mom 1/2 swedish because my gramma isn't swedish at all (German if you really want to know). So that makes me 1/4 swedish about because I don't know if my dad is swedish because he's adopted by his aunt and uncle, who are swedish, cause his real parents died.

But I don't live in Sweden I live in Minnesota!!

Well, Romanian too here! I'm from Tulcea (small town in SE Romania), but I live in Bucharest (the capital) at the moment. I'm 1/4 Bulgarian (my grandpa was Bulgarian), yet I don't know one word of that language...
Russian, German, Cherikete, French, almost everything else you can think of. God bless America.
Ah yes, Crystle...America, the great melting pot...I live in the most beautiful part of Colorado (forgive me if I'm biased - I can't help it!!). I'm not only American but Irish, German, English (not much though, so I'm still allowed here!!!!), and Cherokee and Iroquis. We can't quite figure out whether my features and coloring came from the German or Irish side but the red Irish blood and the Native American are constantly fighting over my skin: I'm white in winter and brown in summer!!!! Pixie Smilie
Orc Grinning SmilieNZ!!!Orc Grinning Smilie
I'm 1/2 Czech, 1/4 Scottish, 1/8 French and 1/8 German, but half my grandparents, my parents, and I were born in the USA.
I'm all woman.



Lady Vee, but surely your ALL Sasanach/Saesa too?

I'm ALL Welsh Beef!


Bluddy Engerlish, We almost had 'em in the Rugby.


And for those folks not edumacated properly on the geo-political state of the UK... Wales, Scotland and Northern Ireland or Eire or NOT synonymous with Engerland!!! So i can sign in on this thread with a anglo-saxon free conscience.
