What a fun exercise. Bella and I have been dipping into Hobbitus Ille more or less at random. She likes to find her favorite passages and then try to pick out words. We looked at the Attercop poem together yesterday.

Also, the Latin equivalent to "Once Upon a Time" is "Olim."


I'm not very learned in Latin AT ALL, so this may be a dumb question--why would Walker render Gandalf as Gandalphus? I thought the ph as f phonogram was distinctively Greek. Just curious about it.
I love this post, though. I miss messing around with languages, though I haven't done much!


I'm not sure, Tabitha -- I searched for a while. My best guess right now is that there aren't many Latin stems ending in f?
