        Just got the notification that Volume 5 is on its way from the land of Lulu (Luludor?) to the land of Inwinore (hopefully by a fast eagle) - I will then have the complete collection!   So looking forward to - the amount of work and scholarship you put into these analyses are so helpful and living models for how we should work with Tolkien's languages.  Many thanks for keeping them coming!
         
        Best, Andy
