This 'for ever' is what I am refering to, Carl, not to the further gloss
which is correct. Anyway, I now understand what is meant if not written to
my satisfaction in my poor knowledge of the Albion lingo :)

[OK, I see your point. The wording in _VT_ does perhaps silently import
more than it should: the knowledge that by writing _ullume_ 'for ever'
we are conveying Tolkien's gloss, which needs to be understood as not a
literal gloss. Carl]
