_A Gateway to Sindarin_
- The University of Utah Press announced in its fall catalogue that it
will publish _A Gateway to Sindarin: A Grammar of an Elvish Language
from J.R.R. Tolkien's Lord of the Rings_ by David Salo.
Amazon.com lists it as coming out in October, priced at $49.95.
[The table of contents for David's forthcoming book is listed at:
I note that, from this listing, it is quite clear that in fact the vast majority
of what David will discuss will derive from Noldorin of the _Etymologies_,
not from Sindarin of _The Lord of the Rings_, so the title of his book is in
fact a misnomer on several counts (though the publisher, and not David,
may be primarily responsible for the title, as is often the case).
I have ordered the book and hope to offer a complete review once I have
received and read it. I encourage others to do the same. CFH]
