PE17 is a great issue with a large bunch of new words and stems. Here
are two small issues I just noted while browsing the Sindarin part of
the index in PE17:
_alaf_ 'elm' (PE17:153, root ALAB-) is missing from the Sindarin
index. (It should have appeared on p. 209 - Q. _albe_ from the same
entry is correctly listed in the index p. 194).
_serke_ 'blood' on p. 217 is a typo for _sereg_ (PE17:184, root
SEREK-). Of course, _serke_ is the Quenya form (correctly listed in
the index p. 205).
By the way, out of pure curiosity, why aren't these indexes
cross-referenced with the actual pages in that edition of PE? Such
internal cross-concordances would have been useful, in my opinion, for
checking the index entries and the texts back and forth. This could
maybe have been done more or less automatically during the production
of the indexes (setting target references on stems etc. - most modern
word processing software have such features), but if this is no longer
feasible now, would you be interested in someone doing it? (More
precisely, this is something I will do for my own projects and
interests, but you might have preferences or comments on how this
should be done and potentially presented).
Thanks for the very good (and no doubt pretty hard) job on that nice
[Thanks for the two corrigenda! As for your questions regarding the
cross-references in the indexes, these can only be properly addressed
