‘The Ring of Words’ Review

May 8, 2006 at 6:57 pm by xoanon  - 

Kerewyn sends along this review from worldwidewords.org: The Ring of Words : Tolkien and the Oxford English Dictionary “It’s little known that, before he wrote his famous books, Tolkien worked as a sub-editor at the Oxford English Dictionary for two years, helping to compile the last section to be published. Peter Gilliver, Jeremy Marshall, and Edmund Weiner—the authors of this book—are among the present-day senior editors of the same work. Their commemoration of his linguistic facility comes a little late to the Tolkien party, but will interest anybody who regards the language of the books to be one of their prime qualities.”
