- Jun 15, 2013You're defining the difference, then, between lecturing and "lecturing". That level of minute precision of nomenclature I can't follow you on. If he talked for an hour to a class, whether he was willing to be interrupted and enter into side discussions or not, he was lecturing, whether it was what the university formally called a "lecture" or not.

I knew of this, and read that as meaning lecturing.
Anyway, by these definitions (which, as the undersigned were discussing earlier today, may differ between then and now, and between the English and American experiences of higher education) Tolkien did no lecturing in 1919-20.
