      Item:

      Of six references to the word "dominion" in Blackwelder's _Tolkien
      Thesaurus_, two are to Sauron having dominion, one to the One Ring's
      dominion over the Three, one to Old Man Willow's dominion of the forest,
      and one to Galadriel assuring Gimli that "gold shall have no dominion" over
      him.

      That does put a rather sinister cast, doesn't it, over the sixth reference,
      which is to the forthcoming Dominion of Men?

      Don't even ask about the related "domination", clearly a wholly evil
      concept in this context.
