DECODED DWARF LANGUAGE [by Charlotte M. Liebel], July 4, 2012
The Hobbit by J.R.R. Tolkien fascinated me as no other book of fantasy and fiction. In fact, my preoccupation with the language of the Dwarfs led me to decode the rather complicated letters of their alphabet.
After reading the book once, I reread it. I spent days or weeks working on clues throughout the book because I was determined to read the messages beginning on Page I, the Author’s Note.
It was not until I learned the completed alphabet and read the language that I could be satisfied that I had read the entire book.
The story is a work of art in the description and storyline of characters and places visited. In my imagination, people and lives were incredulously conceived. Thus, my journey with the likes of Mr. Bilbo Baggins, Gandalf, and the Wilderland will forever exist.
