362Re: The runes of The Hobbit.
- Dec 15, 2001But since the Hobbbits used a form of common, but their lingo was
represented by a Germanic tongue (or like). Then using Germanic runes
(Futhurk/Futhark) to represent their Germanic lingo (not the real
lingo mind you, but ).
One I find fun, is to take the Hobbit runes, find the one closest to
it in Cirth and see what you get, you will be mystified.
