dwarf as a swear, in the movie
- In the movie (and probably in the book, I don't remember), Eomer
calls Gimli "dwarf" in an offensive way, when they first meet.
Of course, the dwarf doesn't care about it, or doesn't seem to, not
at least to it, cause that's what he is, with pride!, we might
It shows, together with other things (Gimli's story about men
thinking that dwarves lived in hollows in the ground...), that men
had a wrong thought about dwarves...
(Probably he's willing to make people pay attention to the fact that
dwarves do live under the ground, but not in hollows like animals,
but in great halls of stone. Something in the same way is sayd about
hobbits, in the beginning of The Hobbit.)
