Treason of Isengard (TI)

— J.R.R. Tolkien, (editor) Christopher Tolkien; 1989

The seventh book in the History of Middle Earth series. It discusses revisions in the first half of the Fellowship of the Ring (Book I), the genesis of the second half (Book II) and the beginning of the Two Towers (first chapters of book III). Given the early nature of this writing, its words are best classified as Noldorin and (Middle) Qenya, even though they are the precursors to the Sindarin and (Late) Quenya words of The Lord of the Rings.

References are by page number; the first 2 digits of the decimal value are the line number, and the last 2 digits are the word position in the line.
