- A query I just got--something about this sounds vaguely familiar. Can one
of you frighteningly knowledgeable folks give me the specifics?
"Do you (or anyone in the Group) remember reading about some 'orphan
words' that our favorite philologist Tolkien wanted to investigate? I
can't remember where I read that bit, nor can I remember whether the words
that intriqued him were mentioned. Any ideas?"
