The seventeenth issue of Parma Eldalamberon. This issue publishes several documents by Tolkien that describe the meaning of words in The Lord of the Rings, collectively titled “Words, Phrases and Passages in Various Tongues in The Lord of the Rings”. Tolkien wrote these documents between the release of the first and second editions of The Lord of the Rings, and therefore they are a good source of later linguistic information. The documents were never finished, and they include some speculative material that was not incorporated into the 2nd edition of The Lord of the Rings. Therefore, care is needed in interpreting the text.
Only original references are listed in this lexicon; references in editorial comments to other documents are not included.
