Thread Name: BS: Saw The Hobbit during the holidays
Subject: RE: BS: Saw The Hobbit during the holidays
Interestingly, this morning (9-something over here), I downloaded a podcast on Tolkien and Old Norse- as a writer whose fantasy project combines bits of Tolkien and his Norse influences (besides almost EVERY fantasy writer has a Tolkien influence), I'm always interested in his influences- and besides it's a damn interesting topic. Anyway, halfway into the podcast episode I've been listening to, on The Hobbit's character names, the "Dvergatal" is read aloud and you actually get to hear how the names are pronounced.
