      You seem to be taking this awfully hard! Note that this problem with
      dictionary translation has nothing at all to do with anyone's English
      abilities (well, at least not generally). Even native English speakers
      can and do make this sort of mistake frequently -- it is a problem that
      greatly plagues so-called "Neo-Sindarin" and "Neo-Quenya". It has
      instead to do with relying on isolated glosses taken from dictionaries,
      instead of considering the full context of a word, in both its usage
      and in comparison and contrast with other words of similar or related
